Santa Barbara French Festival
Saturday July 14, 2012
We are happy to announce that the Festival will now be in the capable
hands of two fine Santa Barbara non-profit organizations: Speaking of
Stories and Center Stage Theater. They've got show biz in their blood,
and have been part of the Festival for many years (vending the beer,
wine and Perrier). French Festival founder Steve Hoegerman will
continue to play an active role in the Festival as advisor and consultant.
And will still be the emcee on the Moulin Rouge Stage and at the
Poodle Parade. So if you've missed his jokes, you'll have a chance to
hear them again!
The transfer of the Festival to this new group will allow the Festival to
grow into the future. Our goal is for the Festival to continue for years and
years. We do NOT want to make any major changes: we want the same
joyous Festival you have known and loved to be here forever. It will be
the same great Festival, and now all the proceeds will benefit these two
great community organizations helping keep the arts alive in Santa
Barbara throughout the year.
This summer's Festival will be a triumphant return and we are excited
to celebrate Bastille Day with all of Santa Barbara in beautiful Oak Park
on July 14 & 15!
