A message from our Executive Director


In light of the declaration of public health emergency for COVID-19 and the California Department of Public Health's directive to cancel or postpone nonessential events that do not allow for social distancing of six feet per person, Downtown Santa Barbara has decided to cancel our 1st Thursday event scheduled for April 2nd. Over the next few weeks, we will be monitoring public health directives and advice and making a decision regarding 1st Thursday scheduled for May 7th.

Thank you for your continued support of 1st Thursday and our Downtown businesses. Please stayed tuned to our social media channels for ways to support Downtown during this time. 

Thank you,
Carrie Kelly, Executive Director
Downtown Santa Barbara
