About Us

Who are we?

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. 

Our Events

We present a number of public events events throughout the year, from concerts like Equinox to more informal community pub-sings, there is always an upcoming Revels happening.

The Christmas Revels

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.

Upcoming Event: Equinox

A Concert in Celebration of the Changing Seasons

Celebrate Santa Barbara Revels' change of seasons with a concert inspired by last year's Early California setting of the Christmas Revels, as well as Celtic music in the theme of our upcoming Irish show. 

Enjoy performances of music from the 1830s Rancho period, sea shanties, and Celtic favorites, played by our gifted Revels musicians, led by music director Erin McKibben. Join the artists for a courtyard reception, and enjoy this engaging music from diverse traditions – now hosted in the acoustically and visually beautiful sanctuary of the Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara.
