The highly-anticipated 2018 Downtown LIVE Art & Wine Tour came back Thursday, May 24, 2018. Participants traveled to and from beautiful venues on a self-guided tour through Downtown Santa Barbara while tasting delicious food and wine from local restaurants, wineries, and breweries. We enjoyed some of the LIVE art that makes our community so vibrant and bid on amazing items and experiences in the silent auction, taking center stage at the Final Party at the beautiful Santa Barbara Historical Museum, benefiting the Downtown Public Art Fund. One lucky winner went home with 52 bottles of local wine - enough for one bottle per week for an entire year! Plus, another lucky raffle winner won 2 Alaska Airline tickets valued at $2500+. This year's tour featured venues south of Carrillo Street and finished with a Final Party at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum with more food, wine, live music by local band ECHO, and a silent auction showcasing wonderful gifts and packages.

We have deconstructed the remaining silent auction packages; now there are items to fit all budgets! Items include gift cards to fabulous local restaurants and businesses, certificates for professional and personal services, museum memberships, gift baskets, and many exciting interactive experiences!

Be sure to check out the auction link HERE to secure your favorite items today. Note that payment can be made online through PayPal or at time of pick up at the Downtown Santa Barbara office. See online auction for further details.

Auction OPENS TODAY 6/11 at 3:00 pm and CLOSES on Sunday 6/24 at 11:55 pm.

Next year's LIVE Art & Wine Tour is scheduled for Thursday, May 23, 2019. See you North of Carrillo Street!
