Santa Barbara Events and Festivals

It's always a good idea to research when certain events are happening in Santa Barbara.  Not just so that you can attend these great events and festivals, but sometimes the larger events, such as FIESTA!, can certainly impact your big day.  Hotels fill up quickly and charge more than usual, traffic gets out of control, and dinner reservations become impossible.  So before you set your date, please take a look at this years event schedule and maybe pick a fun weekend to visit for your planning and get a chance to experience why some of the reasons why Santa Barbara is such an amazing city to visit and explore.  Have fun!
