Marking its 31st 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!
