One of the things that makes Los Gatos such a great little town is that there is so much going on.
Every Sunday in summer there are two superb happenings. The all year Farmers Market sets up in the Town Plaza Sunday mornings 8am - 1pm -- rain or shine! I think it is by far the best Farmers Market around. Wonderful produce and flowers, several delicious food vendors (crepes, Mexican, Asian) and usually some music as well. The Town Plaza Park next door is a wonderful little tree lined grass park, perfect for dogs, kids and just lounging around. There's a neat little fountain too! But the star is the produce -- fresh, lots of variety, and you can taste everything before you buy.
Music in the Park is a ten-week, Sunday afternoon concert series (which started this past Sunday, June 21st, and continues through the end of August) presented by the Los Gatos Arts Commission. Concerts are free to the public and are held on Sunday afternoons from 5pm - 7pm on the Civic Center (Town Hall) lawn. This summer music series features multi-ethnic, multi-cultural and multi-generational music to the Los Gatos Community. Attendees may bring beer or wine with their picnic lunches.
Jazz on the Plazz hosts free concerts at the Town Plaza Park. This Wednesday-night summer series makes its 2009 debut on June 24th, and will run through August 26th. All performances will take place from 6:30 to 8:30p.m. Bring a friend, your dinner, a bottle of wine, sit back and be cool!
The annual Los Gatos Celebrates the 4th of July is Saturday, July 4th 11am - 5:30pm at the Los Gatos Civic Center. Live music, picnic lunch, BINGO and more. Independence Day, Los Gatos style. Join us!
And don't forget 2nd Saturdays on July 11th & August 8th. This is a great shopping and socializing experience, right here in the foothills of the gorgeous Santa Cruz Mountains. Vintages is offering a gift with minimum purchase, and other specials on 2nd Saturdays. Come on by.
