Audiences will be enveloped by the sights and sounds of Filipino music and culture as alumni from the two-time European Grand Prix winner Philippine Madrigal Singers take the Ford stage. This is the first time that artists from this world-renowned choral group, including Sal Malaki, Edward Granadosin, Annie Nepomuceno, Maria Cristina "Kit" Navarro and Erwin Andaya, will appear together in concert outside of the Philippines. Along with Ed Nepomuceno's Harana Men’s Chorus and Melvir Ausente's INSPIRARE Vocal Ensemble, they will perform a variety of Filipino and American pop songs, original compositions and standard choral music. Audience members are invited to share in the Filipino choral experience during the sing-along portion of the evening.

If you’re new to the LIB experience, please take some time to look around our site – perhaps the photos and videos tell it best. You can also connect with the LIB community which is active throughout the year, via our Connect page.
LIB strives to be a greater expression each year. We take pride in curating local up and coming music talent and international world renowned artists. We paved the way for live painting at our events with Lightning in a Paintcan, which is headed up by our very own non-profit The Do Art Foundation, who’s efforts fund initiatives that are far reaching in the art world. We host speakers and workshops on topics of sustainability, spirituality and child-friendly entertainment. Behind everything we do at LIB is a deep commitment to our environment and our sustainability practices which we continually strive to improve every year. LIB was the winner of the Outstanding Greener Festival Award, 3-years in a row!

The Santa Barbara French Festival returns to Oak Park July 13 and 14 to celebrate Bastille Day and all the things that make the French cultural history so rich. Great food, wine, mimosas, crepes, delicious pastries, music, dance, -- and, of course, the infamous Poodle Parade and Femmes Fatale Revue! The 25th Annual Santa Barbara French Festival is a community event not to be missed. It's a Dance Festival, a Music Festival, an Arts & Crafts Festival and, of course, a Food Festival. It is also a way to support Center Stage Theater and Speaking of Stories, two great Santa Barbara area non-profits. For two days Santa Barbara truly is the American Riviera as the French influences take over. Each day the fun starts at 11:00 am when the entertainment kicks off on three different stages and continues non-stop until 7:00. The stages will be filled with dance and music from more than 30 different acts including performances, audience participation and instruction. And every minute of entertainment is all free! The entertainment is only part of what the Festival has to offer -- more than 50 booths will be offering everything from crepes and delicious French pastries to face painting and henna tattoos. You can grab a mimosa or a beer, as you peruse some beautiful paintings and photography. Enjoy a delicious crepe while shopping for your French Festival t-shirt and beret. Take a moment for a quick massage and before you settle in for the next performance and a sinfully delicious croissant. All in the beautiful setting of Santa Barbara's Oak Park.
