French Festival in Santa Barbara July 14 and 15

   The French Festival takes place in Oak Park, 
which is located at the corner of W. Junipero 
Street and Alamar Avenue in Santa Barbara. 
The official address for the park is 300 W. 
Alamar Avenue, Santa Barbara 93105.  
Oak Park covers a large geographic area, 
for navigation purposes you may have better 
luck using 600 W. Junipero 
to get to the area where the Festival is held. 
The portion of the park that houses the 
Festival is concentrated 
roughly in the area bordered on the east 
side by Alamar Avenue and West Junipero 
Street on the southern edge.

The Eiffel side of the Festival set up is on 
the grassy side of the park that runs along 
Alamar Avenue.  The Moulin Rouge side 
of the Festival can be accessed from the 
small parking lot on Junipero Street, or 
by entering on the Alamar Avenue side 
and crossing over the footbridge in the 
middle of the park.
