Santa Barbara Arts & Culture

Arts and culture lovers take note: plan ahead! In fact, treat a visit to Santa Barbara the way you might a trip to Chicago or New York (with a lot more sunshine and fresh air) - you don't want the stand-out memory of your trip to be what you didn't get to see. To help you hit it all, visit Culture 101—your go-to guide to over 101 art and cultural attractions in Santa Barbara, all just off Highway 101!

Pick your passion and explore it further here. Or follow a tried and true route to cultural bliss with one of these itineraries:

Besides annual arts events and festivals, Santa Barbara offers time-tested standbys: monthly 1st Thursdays, when galleries extend their hours and downtown streets become outdoor stages, and Sundays all year, when Cabrillo Boulevard transforms into a stretching seaside celebration of local arts and crafts.

To learn more about upcoming events, festivals, live performances, gallery hops and more, sign up for our Arts & Culture enewsletter
