The 49th annual Summer Solstice Celebration Festival 2023 will be held in Alameda Park June 23-25. The parade and festival is the largest event in Santa Barbara County, drawing crowds of over 100,000 spectators from around the world, offering vendors an opportunity to showcase their company and products to a wide and diverse audience.
Our goal is to present a balanced offering, with variety in both products and price range. A selection committee will determine eligibility based on quality, diversity, presentation and originality. Solstice has the complete discretion to determine the
category of each vendor.
Early Bird deadline is May 2nd. Booth fees increase by $100 after May 2nd.
