The Santa Barbara Arts and Crafts Show was established in 1965 by local artists, inspired by the sidewalk art shows of Europe and the prestigious "Jardín del Arte" in Mexico City. Sponsored by the City Parks and Recreation Department since 1966, the show is now the only continuous, non-juried arts festival of original drawings, paintings, graphics, sculpture, crafts and photography in the world. Whatever the size, subject, media and price, all are original art, done by the artists you meet.

Approximately 200 Santa Barbara County resident artists display their own original work in an informal atmosphere that encourages visitors to the show to talk with the artists about their work (and in some cases even to see them in action!). This show is unique in that every artist lives in Santa Barbara County and personally produces each piece that is for sale.

"Perfect!" We stayed here for 2 nights whilst on our California road trip. It was such a treat to stay somewhere so calm,convenient and beautifully maintained - it was just lovely. The owners are so friendly and respectful, the attention to detail was amazing and the location was great. If we are ever back in the area we would definitely stay here again and for longer. It was by far the nicest accommodation we enjoyed on our trip and ticked every box! Thank you.
