From mimosas and crepes to a poodle parade, the Santa Barbara French Festival is a great way to celebrate Bastille Day. The 27th annual festival will take place in Oak Park on July 18-19, featuring free entertainment, plus plenty of food and wine and arts and crafts vendors.
And the festival offers a bonus to those who travel car free! If you present your Amtrak California train ticket (or receipt) at the French Festival Beverage Booth, you’ll receive one free beverage with the purchase of one beverage of equal or lesser value.
After you’ve had your lived la vie en rose, get your keep the party going in Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone.
