Vintage Santa Clara

Event Update

Due to the unknown future of large events, and in an effort to provide the best experience, Vintage Santa Clara will not take place in person this year. However, we are planning a virtual engagement opportunity in the spirit of Vintage to celebrate its 37th year. Please continue to save the date as we finalize event details. Updates will be available via this website and the Vintage Santa Clara Facebook Event.
