Make gift shopping as easy as a walk on the beach!

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.

"So glad we stayed at Pacific Crest" -- I stayed here with my husband and 10 year old son in August 2017. Our room had modern updates and was clean, light, well ventilated, and quite beautiful. It is obvious that the hotel owners take a lot of pride in the property and in their hospitality. They were super friendly and accommodating and they even provided a small refrigerator for our room after hearing that our son had food allergies. They were also knowledgeable about the area having lots of recommendations for things to do and places to eat. All of this combined with the very short distance to the beach made our stay perfection. Santa Barbara was our favorite part of our vacation largely due to our decision to stay at Pacific Crest. 10/10 would recommend.
