    CANCELLED: Tardes de Ronda/ 1–5pm/ Saturday

    We are sorry to inform you that Noches de Ronda has been canceled for 2021.

    As much as we would love to bring Noches de Ronda to the Santa Barbara community, Old Spanish Days in Santa Barbara, Inc. recognizes our higher duty to preserve the health and welfare of our community. Based on the spike of the COVID-19 Delta Variant cases and on our extensive review with health officials, it is important that we keep our families, visitors, and community safe. It was extremely difficult to make this decision; however, we look forward to having a grand return in 2022.
