Join us for an enchanting candlelit evening of history, culture, and community at El Presidio de Santa Bárbara State Historic Park.

Listen to Chumash stories by an open fire, see our Nihonmachi Revisited exhibit about Santa Barbara’s Japantown, learn about archaeological artifacts uncovered at the Presidio, enjoy music and dance of 1800s California, and more — all while enjoying free champurrado and freshly-baked goods. This is a free, 1st Thursday event.
