Each year the Santa Barbara French Festival returns to Oak Park to celebrate Bastille Day and all the things that make the French cultural history so rich. Great food, wine, mimosas, crepes, delicious pastries, music, dance, -- and, of course, the infamous Poodles & Pals Parade and Femme Fatales Drag Revue! It is a community event not to be missed. It's a Dance Festival, a Music Festival, an Arts, Crafts and Travel Festival and, of course, a Food Festival. Each day the fun starts at 11:00 am when the entertainment kicks off on three different stages and continues non-stop until 7:00 pm, all in the beautiful setting of Santa Barbara's Oak Park. It's the perfect weekend date or family outing. It is also a fun way to support Center Stage Theater and Speaking of Stories, two great Santa Barbara non-profits.
