Old Spanish Days Fiesta is about the heart of Santa Barbara’s residents and their passion for life. We invite you and the special people in your life to experience the color, passion, charm and – yes, romance! - of Fiesta. Come together to enjoy the magic of song and dance at our Mission, Courthouse and plazas, enjoy the savory traditional foods at the mercados, the thrills at the rodeo, and the dancing under the moonlight at the parties throughout the city.
This year’s theme -– Fiesta Romántica – recalls the time in the early nineteenth century when people met at parties filled with music and dance... that lasted for days!
