Shopping at Arts/Crafts Show
Apr 2021
Went this past Sunday to Arts/Crafts show they reopened this I was told in October 2020 it was not operational due to pandemic for many months earlier in the year
It was much smaller and limited compared to before the pandemic
small scale, much fewer artists and booths - so overall not as as good as years past
hope it will begin to rebuild again and more artists will start to join and participate again as things improve

Only just reopened

One of my favorite Sunday strolls is thru the art and crafts booths. Needless to say that with the corona virus, it is not as before and limited number of vendors. But, having said that, I felt perfectly safe walking the area and shopping, the vendors who were there were very friendly and helpful and very thankful for the business and ability to show their talents again.

Interesting Sunday Stroll

We enjoyed all of the vendors and we purchased many unique gifts. The prices were reasonable and the artwork was beautiful. It’s a lovely way to spend a few hours.

Fun morning in Santa Barbara.
Sep 2019 • Couples
We were taking a short getaway trip up the coast from L.A. and stopped in S.B. for breakfast and a stroll along the beach front Arts & Crafts show. Used to go a a regular basis, but haven't been in a few years. Beautiful morning! Easy parking at the public lot across the street, good vendors, and food on the pier. Bought a couple of goodies and grabbed a bite to eat. I always can recommend activities in Santa Barbara.

Friendly & Talented Artists!
Sep 2019
We enjoyed our stroll along the beach admiring the creativity these artists have! One of our favorites is Judith Geiger, a glass fusion artists who fuses small to large pieces of bright, lively, colorful, and energetic pieces! You must find her and see what she has created ~ even purchase one of her pieces!

Really pretty walk and some interesting artists- mostly overpriced - good for browsing. Not that many craft stalls- mostly paintings/ other wall art.

Pleasant way to spend part of a Sunday along the beach
May 2019 • Solo
This arts & crafts show has been happening every Sunday for years and years. If you enjoy taking a stroll with views of the ocean, and enjoy looking at arts & crafts - this is for you! I had a great day! There are lots of artists and photographers. Many of them have paintings/photos of the same places - so I suggest you check them all out before making any purchases. Same with jewelry - there is a bit more variety, but still a good idea to check everything out first. The quality of the vendors varies - but the Sunday I went, most had high quality merchandise.

Pleasant Sunday Afternoon Activity
Nov 2018 • Couples
The SB Arts and Crafts show has been going on for ages. Every Sunday there are many local artists and artisans selling their wares. Personally I think the items are mostly overpriced, but it is a nice stroll along the beach on a sunny Sunday afternoon and sometimes you do see something original. It is nice to talk to the sellers who explain how they created what they are selling. So do check it out.
