Volunteer Event Tuesday, August 1 to Get the Rose Garden Ready for Fiesta Celebrations

Join us from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. for light weeding and deadheading the rose bushes at the A. C. Postel Memorial Rose Garden, 420 Plaza Rubio.

Facebook event:

The City of Santa Barbara Parks and Recreation Department and the Santa Barbara Rose Society will host a volunteer event at the A. C. Postel Memorial Rose Garden on Tuesday, August 1, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. The public is invited to join in the effort to tidy up the Mission Rose Garden in preparation for Old Spanish Days festivities.

This is a great opportunity to enjoy some pre-Fiesta entertainment, as the dress rehearsal for some of the Old Spanish Days music and dancing will be taking place nearby!
