Santa Barbara Arts and Crafts Show Announces Dates of Holiday Season Shows

Sunday shows every weekend through the end of the year, with new Saturday show dates announced for extra holiday gift shopping

The Santa Barbara Arts and Crafts Show announced its holiday schedule, which will include all Sundays from now through the end of the year, and two special Saturday shows: November 27 and December 18.

Locals will be familiar with the Arts and Crafts Show as a staple of Sundays at the waterfront. The Show extends along the beach side of Cabrillo Boulevard, from Stearns Wharf to Calle Cesar Chavez. Every member of the Show lives in Santa Barbara County and personally creates unique items ranging from ceramics, jewelry, and clothing to paintings, photography, and sculpture. A full list of Show members and their specialties is available online at SantaBarbaraCA.gov/ArtsAndCrafts.

“We don’t have supply chain issues, and shopping in our safe, outdoor market is about as environmentally-friendly as it gets,” said Jason Bryan, Senior Recreation Supervisor, who serves as Arts and Crafts Show administrator for the City of Santa Barbara. “Visitors to the Show will enjoy the beautiful view from Chase Palm Park and meet some of Santa Barbara’s most creative artists—and these extra Saturday shows will give them more time to find perfect holiday gifts.”
