The 32nd Annual Parade of Lights was canceled out of respect for those affected by the Thomas Fire and due to air quality concerns for our participants. We thank everyone for their understanding and support of the event and look forward to seeing you next year on Sunday, December 16th. 

Our Waterfront Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide the community with a quality Waterfront for recreation and commercial use, along with mooring and landside services for boating. Approximately 252 acres of tidelands and submerged lands is managed by the Department. The area encompasses the Harbor and Stearns Wharf. These lands belong to the State and are held in trust by the City. Different from most City departments, Waterfront is an Enterprise Fund and operates from revenues generated from the lands we manage. Tenant rents, boat fees, parking fees, and other sources are put back into improvements and services, such as, preventative maintenance, capital improvements, parking services, staffing, public safety, slip and visitor boat services, special events, public education and more.

Our Harbor Master Plan establishes guidelines and goals for programs, projects, and operations for Santa Barbara Harbor and can be found here: Harbor Master Plan.
