Sidewalk Vending in Santa Barbara
On April 9, 2022, the City of Santa Barbara Sidewalk Vending Ordinance took effect to create a clear path of rules and regulations that allow for sidewalk vendors, stationary and roaming, to operate safely in the community while maintaining public access and public health. This will be a change for Santa Barbara, as most vending in the public right of way, parks and beaches was generally prohibited.
There are a select number of locations and conditions where sidewalk vending is prohibited. Please review the information guide and/or ordinance on the sidebar for directions.
