This iconic venue has boasted many events, concerts, cultural celebrations and family festivities! The Sunken Gardens are surrounded by the historic Santa Barbara Court House that is well known for its clock tower, beautiful mural rooms, and stunning grounds. On the evening of September 15th, we will be trolleyed to Sunken Gardens from the Santa Barbara Hilton. As you arrive you will step into the Sunken Gardens where there will be a pop-up Food and Wine tasting event! Upon your departure from the Trolley, you will be greeted with a glass of wine from Santa Barbara Winery, a beer from Figueroa Mountain, or another beverage. Moving onward, you will experience seven different food tastings from local, highly rated, Santa Barbara restaurants, such as the Lark, Loquita, and Finch and Fork. As you dine, drink, and mingle with other conference attendees, you should visit the famous mural rooms in the historic Court House. Or perhaps ride the elevator up in the clock tower to take in the 360-degree views of Santa Barbara! It will be a night to remember because Santa Barbara Court House and the Sunken Gardens are a magical place and it will be a SPECTACULAR EVENT!! We look forward to seeing you there!
