The community is invited to Un Paseo en Oro to toast to SBTHP’s fifty year journey to preserve, restore and explore Santa Barbara's cultural and architectural heritage. The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. with behind-the-scenes tours and historical vignettes in the Street In Spain, El Paseo Courtyard, Borein Studio, and St. Francis Room, and Casa de la Guerra. El Paseo has been at the heart of Santa Barbara’s history since its construction in 1923. Enjoy this rare opportunity to view El Paseo, a world famous architectural icon that has served as a model for developing the City of Santa Barbara. Learn about the Casa de la Guerra, built by Presidio Comandant José de la Guerra in the 1820s, the economic, political and social center of the pueblo of Santa Barbara. Meet the colorful characters from El Paseo’s past and enjoy music by SONando Santa Barbara, a local group that plays traditional music from Mexico and Latin America.
The reception will be followed by a plated dinner in Restaurante del Paseo where guests will enjoy commemorative presentations honoring SBTHP’s 50th anniversary. Milford Wayne Donaldson, Chairman of the United States Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, a prominent figure in the field of historic preservation, will speak. Guests will also enjoy a special performance by Timo Nunez, a world-renowned flamenco dancer. The history of SBTHP’s community activities will be celebrated. SBTHP board members Keith Mautino and Terease Chin are co-chairs of the event committee.
