SB Funk Zone Live, a series of bimonthly “arts, wine, dine and shop events” will launch on March 29th, 2024. Similar to the popular Downtown Santa Barbara 1st Thursday monthly events, Funk Zone venues will open their doors late from 5-8 pm on the last Fridays of every other month (November will be swapped for Dec due to the holiday).

 “It’s exciting to see the Funk Zone’s business sector joining forces and creative energy to support each other. Everyone understands the Arts are Santa Barbara's economic superheroes, boosting tourism, creating jobs, and supporting local businesses. Our vibrant arts scene isn't just beautiful—it's a powerhouse for our economy, showing that creativity has the amazing ability to bring prosperity to our wonderful city!" cheers Jana Brody the coordinator of the events.
