The 90-Plus Birthday Party Is Back!

Sponsors Needed for Quirky, Senior-Focused Santa Barbara Tradition's 27th Year

The 90-Plus Birthday Party

The 90-Plus Birthday Party is one of the Parks and Recreation Department's most fun community events, and it's back! Sponsorship opportunities are available for this year's bash, which is scheduled for April 20 at the Carrillo Recreation Center.

Since 1985, the 90-Plus Birthday Party has treated elders 90 years old and up to a collective birthday lunch, birthday cake, and social entertainment hour including a sing-a-long and live band. Elders and caregivers are welcome at each year's event, and there is no charge for attendance.

This year’s emcee will be KEYT’s John Palminteri. Palminteri was took the reins from long-time emcee, the late Larry "Mr. Santa Barbara" Crandell at the 2015 90-Plus Birthday celebration. John is excited to help continue this unique local tradition. Crandell, who passed away in 2016, was an avid supporter of the 90-Plus Birthday Party, always pitching in to raise funds for event costs. His humor and friendly banter during his many years as emcee lent a particular sense of fun to the occasion.
