The Santa Barbara Botanic Garden has a very strict conditional use permit from the County which includes conditions that limit guest attendance (generally to 80), prohibit amplified music, require events to conclude by 9 p.m., and require events to be cancelled in the event of a Red Flag Warning from the County Fire Department.

Thank you for considering the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden for your special event facility rental!
