Special Events

We're beyond disappointed that we've had to cancel a number of 2020 events already this year, but the words of David Eliot, Publisher of the Peninsula Pulse, seemed to sum up exactly what we're feeling. Here's to spending more one-on-one time with you and your friends and families!

We may not have festivals in 2020, but we have each other. We may not have large gatherings, but we know how to keep people safe, how to entertain, how to build relationships. We are consummate hosts, and our home has so much to offer visitors. We have beautiful parks, outstanding artists, fantastic food and incredible people.

Soon we will be welcoming back our extended family. We will find a way to celebrate together. We always do. It will be different, but we will find a way together. It is what we do best. 

~David Eliot, Publisher, Peninsula Pulse
