21 Santa Cruz Instagram Accounts You Should Follow


 | August 6, 2020

As our About Page say’s “Santa Cruz is creative. It’s innovative. It’s funky. It’s adventurous. It’s collaborative. Let’s celebrate that! Event Santa Cruz was born out of a desire to showcase and spread the creative energy that makes Santa Cruz so amazing.”

So what better way to do that than by showcasing some really cool local Instagram accounts. So on July 27, 2020 we asked our Instagram followers “What are some of the most creative, interesting, entertaining or thought provoking Instagram accounts by a person, business or organization in our county?

With 568 comments on the post we came up with the 21 pretty rad accounts. That being said there are so many more that are deserving to be on this list but we just do not have room. So stay tuned for part 2. If you think we are missing an amazing Instagram account let us know in the comments.

So without further ado, in no particular order we present to you…
