In celebration of October being National Arts and Humanities Month, the city of Santa Clarita hosts ARTober every year, offering free arts and humanities festivities throughout the month of October in the City of Santa Clarita. ARTober is a full-month celebration of the Arts.

In the works are Saturday-sessions for the Arts Symposium, a new public art unveiling, virtual escape room fun, an Old Town Newhall scavenger hunt, open submissions for Sidewalk Poetry 2021, new art galleries and the list goes on.
