15th Annual Santa Barbara Revels May Day Celebration

April 30, 2023 @ 12:00 pm PDT

SB Revels invites the entire community to enjoy its 15th annual May Day Celebration at noon on Sunday, April 30th, held at Center Court of Paseo Nuevo Shopping Center. This seasonal tradition to welcome in the Spring-time is FREE for everyone, and all ages are encouraged to attend.
Participants will learn special Spring songs and sing along with familiar favorites of the season. The Revels Dancers demonstrate “Upon a Summer’s Day,” a favorite English Country dance. The Pacific Sword Company will perform, and members of the Santa Barbara Bagpipe & Drum Corps are expected to join us.
Everyone coming to the May Day festivities can join in singing seasonal songs and learning a traditional English Country dance, and there are flowers to make nosegays and posies. The afternoon culminates in the traditional may pole ritual: two circles of participants walk in opposite directions around the may pole, holding colorful ribbon streamers and weaving intricate patterns as they move to the inside and then the outside of each other.
Santa Barbara Revels’ goal is “Bringing Tradition to Life” by involving our diverse community in interactive celebrations of seasonal change. Beginning in 2008 in Santa Barbara, Revels brings a unique mix of seasonal music, dance, story telling, and ritual to every activity. “Join us and be joyous!” For more information about May Day and future programs, visit www.santabarbararevels.org.
