PROGRAM & EVENT MANAGEMENT
Saturday, April 1, 2017
9 – 5 PM
Open Streets events traditionally rotate from neighborhood to neighborhood in order to highlight different areas of the community. We have held three consecutive Open Streets event on Cabrillo Blvd. in Santa Barbara and it’s time to mix things up! No SB Open Streets event will be held on Cabrillo Blvd. in the Fall this year, but instead, it will be held in Carpinteria in the Spring of 2017. While the event will be held at a new location, rest assured it will have most of the great activities offered at our past three events and some great new activities yet to be experienced. The streets will once again become a public park for the day and transformed into a celebration of people-power to promote better health, flexibility and FUN!
Each year between May and July the Summer Solstice Celebration, a 501 c 3 non profit organization hosts an open community arts workshop for where individuals, kids and families, young and old and from all backgrounds can learn to build floats and ensembles for the Summer Solstice parade. More than 1000 individuals participate in the workshop each season and Santa Barbara’s largest parade. Now a 43 -year tradition in Santa Barbara, the Parade on State Street and 3-day Festival in Alameda Park attracts over 100,000 parade and festival-goers. The Solstice Celebration is known for being one of the largest events on the west coast and represents participants of over 200 community organizations in Santa Barbara and through out the South Coast.
BREAD AND ROSES
October 11, 2017
Bread & Roses is the Fund for Santa Barbara’s largest annual fundraiser and community celebration. It is a time for community activists, donors, volunteers, elected leaders, and supporters of progressive social change to gather, celebrate our work together and raise money for the Fund’s grant-making and technical assistance programs. With nearly 800 attendees, it is also one of the largest events of its kind on the Central Coast. This year’s event will once again feature a gourmet buffet-style dinner from our region’s finest restaurants, wines from local vintners and both a live and silent auction. Nearly all items and services are donated, allowing us to make the event accessible for all and still ensure that 85 cents of every dollar donated goes to the work of the Fund.
The Annual Bread & Roses Community Celebration will take place on Saturday, October 11th, 2017 at QAD’s corporate headquarters – a gorgeous 3 acre site overlooking the Santa Barbara channel atop Ortega Hill in Summerland.
