What we're about

Public Group

The Santa Cruz Transplants & Friends was started with the idea that many people move to this beautiful area & would like to make new friends. There is so much to do around Santa Cruz, meeting for coffee, lunch, happy hour or meeting for hikes, water fronts, music events, sports, amazing restaurants, a wide variety of movie theaters, theaters, and much more, but if you don't have anyone to go with you might be missing out on the fun!

You don't have to be a recent transplant to Santa Cruz - just someone who wants to join to make friends & to come to events to meet wonderful friends. All are welcome. There is no age range or requirement. If you live in the Santa Cruz area or the South Bay or anywhere in the Bay Area & would like to join us please come!

Please note: when you RSVP to an event, the host of that event is expecting you. A lot goes into organizing meetups. Please let us know if you can't make it by updating your rsvp's in a timely manner. Life happens, we all know that, so please have the courtesy to change your RSVP to "not attending." Our hope is that everyone has a good time - you need to show up to join in and be counted!

Note: All of our activities are "at risk" activities. By joining us you agree to hold the organizers, assistant organizers, and other members harmless. You are responsible for your own health and safety.
