Celebrate the fifth of May and Santa Barbara’s rich cultural heritage at the 20th annual Cinco de Mayo Festival on May 7th and 8th, from 11 am until 10 pm. Head to Plaza de la Guerra and at the historic Casa de la Guerra to enjoy live music, tasty Mexican fare, craft booths, frosty drinks, and activities for the kiddies. Crack cascarones (confetti-filled eggs) and imbibe in icy margaritas and homemade chips and guacamole at El Paseo Restaurant, located at 813 Anacapa Street in the historic El Paseo, built in the 1920s. A favorite local Mexican restaurant located a short walk from the event festivities, El Paseo fills up with boisterous crowds on this margarita-favoring holiday, so get there early if you want a table. !Feliz Cinco de Mayo!
