The Civic Association was formed in 1980 for the purpose of promoting civic pride, monitor governmental actions that impact the community and to promote the community as a desirable place to live, work and visit. In 2000, the Board of Directors recognized that Art & Music play an integral role in the community’s quality of life. SABCA began to produce events and support other non-profits to create arts & cultural events that gave the community its own unique identity. SABCA created the Wednesday Farmers, Arts & Crafts Market, Music by the Sea Free Concert Series, Surf Illumination (our community Christmas tree lighting festival) and other events. The promotion of arts & culture is part of our organization’s mission.
