The 31st Annual Santa Barbara French Festival
The Santa Barbara French Festival returns to Oak Park July 13 and 14 to celebrate Bastille Day and all the things that make the French cultural history so rich. Great food, wine, mimosas, crepes, delicious pastries, music, dance—and, of course, the infamous Canine Cavalcade & Femme Fatales Drag Revue!
The Santa Barbara French Festival is an event not to be missed. It's a Dance Festival, a Music Festival, an Arts & Crafts Festival and, of course, a Food Festival! It is also a way to support Center Stage Theater, and all the great local arts organizations that perform there. Each day the fun starts at 11:00 am when the entertainment kicks off on three different stages and continues non-stop until 7:00.
The stages are filled with dance and music from many different acts including performances, audience participation opportunities and instruction. And every minute of entertainment is all free! Great entertainment is only part of what the French Festival has to offer—more than 70 booths will be offering everything from crepes and delicious French pastries to face painting and henna tattoos. You can grab a mimosa or a beer, as you peruse handcrafted jewelry and beautiful French tablecloths.
Enjoy a delicious crepe while shopping for your French Festival t-shirt and beret. Play a game of Pétanque with the King and his Court before you settle in for the next performance with a sinfully delicious croissant. All in the beautiful setting of Santa Barbara's Oak Park. Center Stage Theater is pleased to present this great community event, which serves as a fundraiser for the theater helping support all of the great local arts organizations that perform there throughout the year.
