Summer has finally made its grand debut here in Southern California! Santa Monica is brimming with events that you’ll want to mark on your calendar. There is literally something for the whole family to enjoy. Get ready for a fun-filled Santa Monica summer!

Here are 5 local events that you won’t want to miss.

Main Street Summer SOULstice

June 23, 2019

If you like live music, you’ll want to make your way over to Main Street for this totally entertaining summer street festival. Enjoy multiple acts performing on numerous stages throughout the day. This is one of our favorite events!

The SOULstice festival is a real hit among both locals and tourists.

4th Of July Parade

July 4, 2019

This parade is part of Santa Monica history. It’s a time where, we, the community of Santa Monica, can band together to show your love of country and patriotism through floats, music, and more. You’ll be among thousands of spectators who flock to Main Street to see the event unfold.

Don’t forget to wear your red, white, and blue!

Picnic On The Promenade

July to August

Grab some take-out from Big Dean’s Ocean Front Café and head on over to Downtown Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade. It’s a great way to spend your lunch break! Not only are you able to enjoy lunch with other friendly Santa Monica faces, but you can play games, too. Classic board games, ping pong, giant Jenga and Connect4 are all part of the deal. While you eat lunch and engage in a little friendly competition, a DJ will be spinning all of your favorite tunes.

Picnic on the Promenade is a great way to escape the stresses of my work life every Friday in July and August.

Jazz On The Lawn

Sundays in August

Are you looking for a family-friendly way to spend your Sunday evenings? Head on over to Gandara Park for a night filled with smooth jazz. It’s a great way to add music into your life and teach your kids about jazz-culture. You’ll hear tunes played by local musicians while watching the sunset. Bring a picnic supper and a smile!

Santa Monica Summer Farmer’s Markets

All Year-Round

Santa Monica facilitates four amazing farmer’s markets during the entire year. However, summer months are the best months to visit these awesome places for purchasing fresh seasonal produce and much more. Grab a basket and shop around for sweet summer fruits and berries. You may even find a souvenir or two!

We think that the Santa Monica Farmer’s Markets is the perfect place for people watching and good old-fashioned hanging out.
