Santa Barbara Summer Solstice Celebration 2021


2021's Summer Solstice Celebration will be a myriad of different festivities. The community can enjoy "Blooming Gardens" of pop-up art installations that the Solstice Artists and the entire community will be creating on the exterior of homes, local businesses, and notable sites to bloom all over town! We will also have an amazing inflatable garden, with works from the iconic, long time Solstice Artist, Pali X-Mano in the plans as well! All of which you can visit at your leisure in June.

We are working very closely with Santa Barbara County Public Health and Safety to ensure we comply with all of the recommended guidelines with respect to current and projected COVID-19 restrictions. Although sadly, we can't have the regular parade or festival this year, we have been given the green light to expand our event in other ways.
In collaboration with TVSB, we will be producing an hour-long segment, Summer Solstice Celebration Virtual State Street Parade, to be filmed at the Community Arts Workshop and broadcast on cable TV around June 27th.

In addition, we will again be producing a locally crafted virtual parade. The Summer Solstice Celebration Virtual Community Parade will be released on the Solstice YouTube Channel on June 27th. It will include the Virtual State Street parade as well as all community video and photo submissions.

Also keep an eye out for other pop-up activities as well that will be happening come June!
