Marking its 30th anniversary, the Santa Barbara Jewish Festival is the Central Coast’s largest community-wide Jewish cultural festival and celebration of Israel’s Independence Day (Yom Ha’Atzmaut). 

 

Organized by the Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara, the Santa Barbara Jewish Festival welcomes thousands of visitors each year to experience and share the best of Jewish culture—live music and Israeli dancing, arts and crafts vendors, family and children’s activities, local community organizations, and of course...delicious food! 

 

In 2017, the Santa Barbara Jewish Festival moves to a new venue—Plaza del Mar. Centrally located on Santa Barbara’s beautiful waterfront, Plaza del Mar boasts ocean and harbor views shaded by dozens of majestic palm trees. On the corner of Cabrillo Boulevard, one of Santa Barbara’s busiest streets, the park is just minutes away from many of city’s most popular attractions. 

 

With plenty of parking nearby, easy connections to public transportation, and handicap accessibility, we’re certain that the move to a new location will increase the public’s access to the Festival and make 2017 the largest event yet.
