Make no other plans but to be at Santa Barbara’s Waterfront beginning at 10AM when over 2.5 miles of East Cabrillo Blvd. & The Funk Zone explode with FREE activities, classes, bootcamps, workshops, music, art & dance performances and information booths…and best of all: THE OPEN ROAD, traffic-free, on which to walk, bike, skate, stroll or roll and explore our streets in a whole new way!
Check out our official Activity & Performance Line-Up, with a complete listing of all the wonderful things to do, see and experience in each of our eight Activity Zones:
There will be fun and exciting things going on at all Activity Zones (and all points in-between, we hope!). Here’s just a small sample of some of the highlights:
11AM Press Conference on the ACTIVATE! Stage – Meet the organizers, sponsors and partners that made SB Open Streets happen, along with closing remarks from Mayor Helene Schneider. Come before or after for all the free fitness classes and bootcamps you can fit into one day!
11AM-Noon Brazilian Capoeira performance by Brasil Arts Cafe – The Brasil Arts team demonstrates the beautiful martial art & dance aspects of Capoeira!
All-Day Community Environmental Council’s ‘Office Hours’ Conference Bike – Sign up to talk to SB Mayor Helene Schneider, Assemblymember Das Williams and other elected officials while pedaling a ’roundtable’ 7-person bike! Sign up at the CEC booth near Sterns Wharf.
The ADVOCATE! Stage will feature great music performances throughout the day, and we’ve heard rumor of a possible 2PM Zombie attack!
ROCK & SKATE! Zone
All-day Learn to Skate Zone – Kids under 12: Bring your skateboard and learn to ride with the City of SB Parks & Rec professionals and the Goleta Skate Park Movement team!
2-3PM Stroller Fashion Show – Yes, that’s right! Bring your ‘decked out’ stroller (baby optional) with your own decorations and sign up to stroll down the runway in this wild, wheeled fashion show hosted by SB City Council Member Grant House! We’ll even have prizes for the ‘blingiest’ strollers, generously furnished by Plum Goods and Naartjíe Kids!
