Santa Barbara Performing Arts

In Santa Barbara, the stages and venues that feature renowned performing artists are as much a part of the show as the performers. Catch a concert in a nearby park or botanical garden. Head to the beach for a family-friendly outdoor concert. Or take a step back in time to the some of the stages of original Hollywood elite at the  GranadaArlington and LoberoTheatres.
