Established in 1965 by local artists, the Santa Barbara Arts and Crafts Show was inspired by the sidewalk art shows of Europe and the prestigious “Jardin del Arte” in Mexico City.  Sponsored by the City Parks and Recreation Department since 1966, the show is now the only continuous, non-juried arts festival of original drawings, paintings, graphics, sculpture, crafts and photography in the world. Whatever the size, subject, media and price-all are original art, done by the artists you meet.


The Santa Barbara Arts and Crafts Show enjoys a beautiful beach setting under the palms along Cabrillo Boulevard east from State Street on all fair weather Sundays and holidays.
