Healthy Weight Loss – Semaglutide! It would take many pages to discuss all the wonder- ful outdoor summertime events in Santa Cruz County. Here are two that are fabulous for people of all ages, including seniors. The Bargetto Art & Wine Festival and Santa Cruz Shakespeare (SCS) have been drawing crowds for many years, and with good reason. Also, SCS has a few volunteer op- portunities. Bargetto Art & Wine Festival The Art and Wine Fes- tival is Saturday-Sunday July 15-16 at Bargetto Winery's tasting room (3535 N. Main Street). It has free admission. If attendees wish to drink wine, it's $20 (includes a souvenir glass). People can sip beverages as they browse artists' booths. Items for sale include jewelry, photography, paintings, mosaics, tex- tiles, woodworks, candles, succulent arrangements, soaps, and lotion. Visit bargetto.com/events for artist list. Food products for sale include small batch jams and mustards. You can grab lunch from a food truck each day: pizza Saturday (Mattia Pizza) and Mexican food Sunday (Taquizas Gabriel). Live music from 2-4 p.m. is from Paperback Ryders (Saturday) and Alex Luce- ro (Sunday). Tasting Room manager Nancy Falcon, who coor- dinates all winery events, is a 23-year Bargetto veteran and is excited for next month. "The festival continues to be a great event for the community with local artists and a chance to taste Bargetto award winning wines," she says. "It has certain- ly grown in popularity over the past few years. This is our 34th Art and Wine Festival which is surprising for a small family-owned business," she adds. Nancy hopes to see many of you there. "We try to bring artists that have a variety of art media so there is something for everyone! Many artists have a huge following," she says. "We have an amazing team of employ- ees that strive to make the festival a unique experi- ence so that all attendees go home with a good memory, a favorite new artist, or a new favorite wine." This year Martinelli's is joining the festival on Saturday with compli- mentary tasting. "Kids can try some delicious apple cider," says Nancy. Martinelli's will also bring several flavored juices which will be for sale in the tasting room. Festival Artists There are 38 participat- ing artists who encompass various career stages and ages—including seniors. I had a recent opportunity to speak with two. First, the talented Fereshteh Fatemi (In the interest of full transpar- ency, this artist is the au- thor's mother). Fereshteh, who is in her late 70s, is honored she has been selected for this festival— as well as the prestigious Open Studios each fall— for several years. This is her fifth time exhibiting; she will be selling jewelry and fused glass dishes. As a participating artist, she enjoys meeting new people and seeing return- ing clients. "It also gives me a chance to greet other vendors." "Adults of all ages would like this festival," says Fereshteh. "If I wasn't a participant, I would certainly enjoy attending Jewelry by Fereshteh Fatemi
