Santa Barbara

Take a peek at some of Santa Barbara's history and activities (festivals, winery tours, scenic drives, etc.) at:

Old Spanish Days Fiesta

For five memorable days, from August 2nd to August 6th, Santa Barbara's week-long festival celebrates the founding of the city by Spanish missionaries.

Residents and visitors will share our cultural and romantic past with the ringing of the bells on the steps of the Old Mission, the procession of the El Desfile Historico parade to the colorful Mercados, the Rodeo featuring the Competicion de Vaqueros, the Arts & Crafts Show, the beautiful Noches do Ronda and much more, with most events free to all. You can find out more on the Fiesta's Web site at http://www.oldspanishdays-fiesta.org/

We urge you to stay a few extra days in Santa Barbara to join the festivities with your family and friends! [an error occurred while processing this directive]
