Santa Barbara is a legendary hub for food, arts, culture and outdoors activities, as well as luxury real estate. No matter what time of year it might be, residents and tourists are treated to a range of events that bring out the best crafts makers, artists, chefs and artisans in the area. This winter, consider heading down to the Santa Barbara Arts and Crafts Show, which has been running every Sunday and will continue through Christmas before the event’s leaders reset the show for the new year.

The Santa Barbara Arts and Crafts Show has been a tradition for years, and acts as an opportunity for residents to come out and see the incredible work being done by artists in the area. Every Sunday this year, approximately 200 local artists have come out to put their paintings, crafts and other creations on display right by the waterfront, while the mood purposefully laid back to ensure all visitors are comfortable.

This art show puts the area's best talent on display. This art show puts the area’s best talent on display.

Admission is free, while the show runs along Cabrillo Boulevard with plenty of the area’s iconic vistas, such as the ocean, beach and palm trees, in clear sight regardless of where visitors might be located. With only about a month left in this year’s season, individuals who have not made it out should certainly consider doing so in the next few weeks. This can be a great opportunity to purchase holiday gifts for the whole family, while supporting the artists that make Santa Barbara such a unique place to live.

More information can be found through the event’s main website, and all residents and visitors are encouraged to come out and enjoy the atmosphere every Sunday through Christmas!
