ABOUT THE 2022
SANTA BARBARA SUMMER SOLSTICE CELEBRATION
The Santa Barbara Summer Solstice Celebration parade and festival are a “go” for 2022!
The theme for this years parade and festival is SHINE.
The 48th annual Solstice Parade will begin at Noon on June 25th at the intersection of Ortega and Santa Barbara Streets. The parade will travel on Santa Barbara Street and end at the Solstice Festival at Alameda park. (Sola Street).
We are hopeful to return to our roots on State Street next year when outdoor dining becomes portable and we are able to safely accommodate parades. In the meantime, we are excited about the opportunities that Santa Barbara Street has opened up for us. Parade spectators can expect to enjoy a different view of Santa Barbara, with the beautiful mountains in the background. Along this route we have the Santa Barbara Courthouse, the SB Historical Museum and the Presidio, all steeped in the history of our community. We can't imagine a better place to renew our spirit, come together as a community and to SHINE.
The Solstice Workshop will open to the public on May 14 at the Community Arts Workshop (CAW). The Solstice Festival will take place in Alameda Park, June 24th, 4pm - 9pm & June 25th, 12 - 9pm.
