ABOUT THE 2021
SANTA BARBARA SUMMER SOLSTICE CELEBRATION
SANTA BARBARA SUMMER SOLSTICE 2021 FESTIVITIES
We are still in the process of finalizing our 2021 festivities. We are working very closely with Santa Barbara County Public Health and Safety to ensure we comply with all of the recommended guidelines with respect to current and projected COVID-19 restrictions. Although sadly, we can't have the parade or festival this year, we have been given the green light to expand our event. Here is a sneak preview, with more details to follow in the coming days. If you want to stay updated on the current happenings, sign up for our newsletter, its easy!
We can't wait to show you our Blooming Gardens of pop up art installations that Solstice Artists and the entire community will be creating on the exterior of homes, local businesses and at notable sites. And we have an amazing inflatable garden, with works from the iconic, long time Solstice Artist, Pali X-Mano in the plans as well! All of which you can visit at your leisure in June!
In collaboration with TVSB, we will be producing an hour-long segment, Summer Solstice Celebration Virtual State Street Parade, to be filmed at the Community Arts Workshop and aired on local cable TV, June 27th. All members of the public are invited to participate in this professionally filmed Solstice cable TV special. Stay tuned for details!
In addition, we will again this year be producing a locally crafted virtual parade, the Summer Solstice Celebration Virtual Community Parade will be released on the Solstice YouTube Channel, June 27th. It will include the Virtual State Street parade as well as all community video/photo submissions. If you haven't yet had an opportunity to see our 2020 Santa Barbara Summer Solstice Virtual Parade, click here. You will be amazed and inspired by all of the incredible creativity! And we love that it is homegrown, just like us!
