November Festivals in Santa Barbara, CA
As usual, the festival calendar in Santa Barbara is delightfully busy in November. The months kicks off with the Santa Barbara Jewish Film Festival, which begins Wednesday, November 1st and runs through Sunday, November 5th. Head for the New Vic Theatre, one of several standout theaters in Santa Barbara, for a wonderful array of shorts, dramas, comedies, documentaries, and other films hailing from near and far, backed up by fascinating Q&As and panels with filmmakers and other luminaries. From exclusive premieres to live music, the 2023 Santa Barbara Jewish Film Festival is sure to be another must-attend.

November also marks the true start of the festive winter holiday season, and on a getaway at Mar Monte Hotel you can get into the spirit of things by heading for the Santa Barbara Zoo and its second annual ZooLights! This after-hours holiday installation kicks off Wednesday, November 15th (it’ll run into January of next year) and utterly dazzles with thousands of handmade silk lantern sculptures, lit by 50,000-plus LED bulbs and evoking animals and other natural phenomena from all over the world.

The Santa Barbara Half Marathon, which takes place Sunday, November 5th, is another go-to choice for fall fun, even if you’re not participating in one of the races: the Half Marathon itself, plus the Santa Barbara Independent 5k and the HOKA Kids Race. For one thing, the Funk Zone will be playing host to a boisterous Finish Line Festival as well as the Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. beer garden. And for another, the action this year extends over the full weekend courtesy of the associated Palm Park Festival, which’ll feature live music, family activities, and other fun.
