Clocking in at about 12 square blocks the Funk Zone may not be huge, but its nooks and crannies are bursting with new and notable arts venues. On Sunday, December 15 from 1-4pm the 100 block of Santa Barbara Street (take a right off Yanonali) is hosting on open-house Block Party. Come down to the ‘hood and explore the arts on that strip. There will be food trucks, band, classic cars, a possible fire truck for the kids to see, just an all-around fun afternoon!
Visitors are invited to take part in a raffle for a gift package from the Santa Barbara Arts Foundry including wine tastings, wine, and one of their signature frog sculptures, a paddle board provided by Stand Up Paddle Board Sports, and more. Tickets will be available at the Foundry. The raffle will benefit Casa Esperanza, a center to support Santa Barbara’s homeless with a 100% sobriety model. Check it out!
