Last month, Governor Newsom said that he expected to lift the mandatory mask mandate in California on June 15th (just eight days from today). However, he may require workers to continue to wear masks under certain circumstances. Fortunately, outdoor events appear to be OK. Last month's Open Air Seaside Market showed tremendous success. Starting later this month, Ventura Steel Drum Saturdays should also be a welcome treat for visitors to Ventura Harbor Village.

The CDC recently released their latest mask guidelines for fully vaccinated individuals. However, Governor Newsom has not released an update to California's mask guidelines as of yet. So, some businesses may require you to wear a mask when you enter. Even so, our beautiful sunny weather makes it a great time to be outdoors. And if you missed attending things like an open air market, the fairgrounds hosts the Ventura Open Air Seaside Market on the last two Sundays of May.

This global pandemic forced companies to make some changes in order to stay in business. For restaurants, it meant upping their "take out" game and moving some tables outside. For shops, it meant limiting the number of patrons allowed inside and requiring masks. Entertainment venues felt a huge hit, with most of them forced to shut their doors indefinitely. Live music all but disappeared. Well, we are very happy to announce that CBF Productions found a way to bring back live music again. They created Ventura Concerts in Your Car.
