ATTENTION: Collectors, Treasure Seekers, and Holiday Shoppers! The annual Folk & Tribal Arts Marketplace, the largest folk art show in Southern California, returns to Santa Barbara with nearly 30 vendors representing more than 50 countries, and featuring an amazing selection of baskets, décor, ethnographic art, furniture, jewelry, pottery, rugs, sculpture, and more. Whether you are shopping for a gift or adding to your collection or “just because,” you can shop around the world for the truly unique whimsical, practical, and exotic treasures.
And while at the Museum, enjoy tantalizing cuisine at the Tribal Arts Café , stroll through the Museum’s picturesque grounds, and then continue shopping around the world.
Admission and parking are FREE. On Saturday and Sunday, December 6 and 7 alternative parking with complimentary shuttle service is available to and from Roosevelt Elementary School. Shuttle services begins at 9:45 AM at the school and the last pick from the Museum to the school is at 5:45 PM.
Proceeds from the Folk & Tribal Arts Marketplace support the Museum’s exhibits and science education programs.
