Santa Barbara was made for the long, warm days of summer.

We love Santa Barbara Summer. Here is our Top 10!

1. Movies at the Sunken Garden

This summer Arts & Lectures is showing James Bond films, starting at the beginning with Dr. No. These movies are Friday nights in the Sunken Gardens outside our awesome and historic Courthouse.

You can claim your spot starting at noon (12pm sharp!). Get there early to get a good seat!

2. Concerts in the Park

3.  Bike Moves Cruiser Ride

One of our favorites throughout the year – these rides take on a totally awesome and fresh energy during the summer. Come cruise State Street with a bunch of other bikes every first Thursday.

4. La Fiesta Pequeña

This event is a local favorite. Another chance to bust out your beach chair and enjoy a show! Hosted on the steps of the Mission – this show is always a lot of fun.

5. The Children’s Fiesta Parade

6. Volleyball at East Beach

You can often find a member of our team hanging out at the East Beach volleyball courts. Our favorite Sundays are spent with a cooler full of lemonade + H20, an umbrella, and a bunch of friends (maybe a cannabis cigarette hehe) – grabbing games of volleyball between relaxing and soaking in the sun!

7. French Festival

8. Evening Stroll Through the Botanic Garden

9. Concerts at the Bowl

We are most excited for Khalid – will we see you there? I certainly hope so.

10. Nite Moves

Nite Moves is awesome all year long – but there is something special about Santa Barbara Summer Nite Moves. I don’t know what it is. Maybe its the late night sun, the warm days that turn to comfortable brisk nights, or the general summer energy. Whatever it is – we love summertime Nite Moves.
