The Solstice Parade and Festival is the largest arts event in Santa Barbara County, drawing crowds of over 100,000 spectators and participants from around the world. After two years of being shuttered due to the pandemic, we have been given the “go ahead” for an in person event this year. Due to the State Street Promenade and related emergency access concerns, this year the parade will take place on Santa Barbara St. The parade will start at noon, June 25th at the corner of Santa Barbara St. and Ortega and proceed to Alameda Park for the festival.
The festival will take place Friday June 24th and Saturday June 25th. The festival is free and open to the public and will include a full musical line up as well as a variety of food and merchant vendors and beer and wine garden.
