Pozole Feast Brings Together Presidio Neighborhood
(Santa Barbara, CA)— The Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation (SBTHP) is hosting a special event for the Presidio Neighborhood on Sunday, August 24, 2014 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. This festive Pozole Feast is intended to share and celebrate plans for upcoming changes and improvements to the neighborhood, brought about through the current SBTHP 4x4x4 Campaign. The event will be held in the Parking Lot next to the Pico Adobe at 115 East Canon Perdido Street on the original site of El Camino Real.
All in the Presidio Neighborhood will benefit from the 4x4x4 Campaign. These exciting developments mark the fulfillment of a vision set forth by Dr. Pearl Chase and many others who have made Santa Barbara the great city it is today. SBTHP will unveil a flyby video of the project that uniquely illustrates the upcoming changes.
Plentiful pozole, festive food, and drinks will be hosted by SBTHP while guests enjoy live music and tours. Interactive demonstrations will be offered on crafting adobe bricks, as guests are invited to try their hand at plastering and whitewashing the Presidio perimeter wall.
RSVP required at email@example.com or 965-0093 so there will be enough Pozole for all.

ABOUT Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation (SBTHP)— The Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation (SBTHP) has works to protect, preserve, restore, reconstruct, and interpret historic sites in Santa Barbara County. Founded in 1963 by Dr. Pearl Chase and other concerned community leaders, SBTHP operates El Presidio de Santa Bárbara State Historic Park—Santa Barbara’s 18th century birthplace—under a unique agreement with California State Parks and purchased the neighboring building that housed Jimmy’s Oriental Gardens, providing an opportunity to interpret the history of Santa Barbara’s Asian American community in the Presidio Neighborhood. SBTHP owns and operates Casa de la Guerra, the 1820s home of Presidio Comandante José de la Guerra and his family—the restored home is now a museum featuring original furnishings and rotating exhibits. SBTHP signed an agreement with State Parks to manage and develop the Santa Inés Mission Mills, located near the town of Solvang, as a future California State Park. In 2011, SBTHP was awarded the Trustees’ Emeritus Award for Excellence in the Stewardship of Historic Sites by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. With the help of continuing education programs and exhibits, SBTHP strives to encourage community involvement and foster an appreciation for Santa Barbara County’s distinct history.
