Every year Old Spanish Days puts on many community events free to the public. With rising costs, we need your help to continue the tradition of Fiesta.
The City of Santa Barbara has been an annual sponsor since the first Fiesta in 1924. A special City Promotional Fund provides support for administration, advertising, promotion and printing to preserve and share with you Santa Barbara’s unique cultural history and the joyous sense of community that is Fiesta. Also, we have many wonderful Corporate Sponsorship that help support Old Spanish Days and make Fiesta possible.
