2018 Congressional Art Competition
Marshalls Patio, 900 State Street, 5:00 - 8:00 pm

Each spring the U.S. House of Representatives sponsors a nationwide high school arts contest. One entry that displays outstanding creativity will be selected from the 24th Congressional District for display at the U.S. Capitol for the year. This year’s entries will be showcased so members of the public can vote on their favorite work. 

Mezcal Martini
900 State Street, Marshalls Patio, 5:00-8:00 pm

Mezcal Martini is a Latin jazz band from Santa Barbara that has been playing for over five years. They blend the musical styles and rhythms of Cuba, the Caribbean, Mexico and the U. S. with improvisation, infectious grooves and scintillating horn lines to create an excitement all its own.
