El Presidente Josiah Jenkins

“As a fifth-generation Californian and Santa Barbara native, I have great pride in our wonderful city,” stated this year’s Presidente Josiah Jenkins in his proclamacion. Part of Old Spanish Days since 1976 when he was a volunteer, Jenkins has had his helping hand in many Fiesta pots, including serving as secretary-treasurer of the Stock Horse Show and being a member of the board since 1991. After 22 years in the Fiesta inner circle, Jenkins still has a profound fondness for the festival, saying he has “gained a great appreciation for how our community comes together every year to create this special event and carry on our many traditions.”
