Big Bang Birthday BashInitiated in 2000, the annual Mission Creek Gala is a festive evening to celebrate the work of the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History and generate support for its scientific and educational mission of inspiring a passion for the natural world.

The Mission Creek Gala sustains the Museum's outstanding education program which touches the lives of 20,000 school children each year through school tours, classes, storytelling, camps, the Nature Collection lending library, and outreach at the Mission Canyon campus and Sea Center.

The March 4, 2016 Mission Creek Gala was an extraordinary special event. Committee members from the past 16 Galas returned to help create a unique, once-in-a-lifetime fundraiser. More than $500,000 was raised for the Museum!
