Santa Barbara Festivals

Santa Barbara's festival scene is a community cornerstone. Since the early days, celebration has always been an important aspect of life here and the highlights now continue throughout the year from the blossoming festivals of spring to the outdoor happenings of summer, to the harvest celebrations of fall and the holiday acknowledgements of winter, ours is a jam packed festival calendar.
