La Presidenta Stephanie Petlow and the Old Spanish Days Board of Directors are pleased to announce that the 2021 Spirit and Junior Spirit of Fiesta Final Auditions will take place this year on April 17, 2021 and will be broadcast live at 3:00 PM on channels 1013 and 13 and will also be live streamed on keyt.com.
The 2021 Spirit Auditions will return to the historic Lobero Theatre where Fiesta began in 1924. In continued efforts to put the health and safety of the community first, the 2021 auditions will be performed live without a live audience. The community is invited to tune in from home to share in the excitement of the day and watch the talented dancers perform. The 90 minute show will culminate with the announcement of the 2021 Spirit and Junior Spirit of Fiesta.
10 Spirit Finalists and 5 Junior Spirit Finalists will audition for the title of Spirit and Junior Spirit of Fiesta. This historic live broadcast will be the first 4K Ultra High Definition broadcast in the Santa Barbara-San Luis Obispo television market and will include stunning live performances of all 15 finalists as well as farewell dances from the 2020 Spirit of Fiesta, Alena Velasco and the 2020 Junior Spirit of Fiesta Alexandra Nocker.
The tradition of the Spirit of Fiesta started in 1949. The Spirits represent the charm, grace, and beauty of Old Spanish Days Fiesta and serve as goodwill ambassadors to local residents and visitors alike.
This year marks the 72nd anniversary of the Spirit of Fiesta.
