Santa Barbara Revels presents our first ever Annual Summer Solstice Celebration. Join us in the heat and light of the longest day of the year, also known as "Midsummer" or "Estival Solstice" while we play for you traditional tunes that capture the essence and joy of this long honored celestial occurrence.
Santa Barbara Revels celebrates a diverse range of cultural traditions by blending music, dance and storytelling in our staged celebrations of the Winter Solstice and other seasons.
We present a number of public events throughout the year. From concerts like Equinox to more informal community pub-sings, there is always an upcoming Revels happening.
The highlight of our season is The Christmas Revels, a joyful theatrical celebration of the winter solstice that travels the world each year showcasing cultural traditions including music, dance, and folktales.
