The holiday-themed Santa Barbara Night Market inside the former downtown Macy's building has been cancelled.
Organizer Glen Broomberg planned for a bigger shopping experience with 300 vendors and a second story ice skating rink but apparently had a conflict with Paseo Nuevo management over the lease and structural plan, reports KEYT.
An estimated 250,000 people visited the Night Market last year.
"Unfortunately, the Night Market owner’s timeline was not in compliance with a feasible and executable plan for the 2019 holiday season," said Pacific Retailers spokesperson Mary Lynn Harms-Romo to KEYT.
The vendors will reportedly receive a refund on their rental fee.
