Events

Garden members and visitors enjoy many events sponsored by the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden throughout the year. Whether at the Garden or in the community, these events remain one of the Garden’s most popular attractions and often sell out. 
Contact the SBBG Registrar or phone (805) 682-4726 ext. 102
