July 23, 2015

(SANTA BARBARA, CA)—Celebrate Fiesta where it all began as the Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation and Plus One Events presents Casa Cantina in the courtyard of the historic Casa de la Guerra. Part of Old Spanish Days Fiesta celebration, from Wednesday, August 5 to Saturday, August 8, 12:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m., locals and visitors alike are invited to relax, sip a cold cerveza, margarita, or glass of wine and celebrate at the home of Fiesta—Casa de la Guerra in the heart of Santa Barbara.


When the first modern Old Spanish Days Fiesta celebration was held in 1924, parties and teas in honor of members from early Santa Barbara families were held at Casa de la Guerra. Casa Cantina, located across the street from De la Guerra Plaza in the heart of downtown’s Fiesta activities, continues the site’s tradition as a place for civic celebrations and special events. Featuring beer and wine for sale, for a small fee guests can relax, have a cold drink and enjoy live music in the evening in Casa courtyard. All proceeds benefit the Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation and the continued restoration of Casa de la Guerra.


SBTHP members receive FREE admission with a valid membership card. Before 4:00 p.m. admission includes entrance to the exhibit at Casa de la Guerra, The Art of Preservation: The Oak Group Remembers Ray Strong. For more information call (805) 965-0093 or visit
