May is here and there are lots of exciting things to do in Santa Barbara! Between Mother’s Day, Cinco de Mayo, and Memorial Day there are tons of reasons to come celebrate in beautiful Santa Barbara. If you are looking for a perfect event for the family, try the Children’s Festival in Alameda Park. Going into its 22nd year, the Children’s Festival admission and entertainment are completely free of charge, so everyone can enjoy pony rides, face painting, inflatable bouncers, and kid’s craft workshops.
May is also home to the Santa Barbara’s iMadonnari Festival at the Santa Barbara Mission; an incredible experience – not to be missed. Madonnari, or street painters, transform the Mission plaza using pastels on pavement to create 150 vibrant and colorful, large scale images. Santa Barbara is proud to be the first to bring this romantic festival to the western hemisphere from our sister festival in Grazie di Curtatone, Italy.
Lastly, there is Cinco de Mayo! Every year thousands of locals and tourists descend on De La Guerra Plaza for Santa Barbara’s annual Cinco de Mayo festival. Enjoy great food from vendors in the plaza and a full stage of live music all weekend!
