Harbor and Seafood Festival Headed for Santa Barbara Waterfront Oct. 13

Seafood vendors and others will be on hand at the harbor

The 11th annual Harbor and Seafood Festival will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13. Admission is free.

This signature waterfront event coincides with lobster season and features local commercial fishermen offering the Santa Barbara Channel’s freshest seafood.

Fishermen and seafood vendors will provide a bounty of lobster, crab, barbecued albacore, clam chowder, fish tacos, seafood gumbo and more.

Arts and crafts vendors will offer jewelry, clothing, art, photography and other handcrafted items. Ocean-related agencies will provide information and history about local ocean resources.

And don’t miss the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum’s films and exhibits, plus touch tanks, tall-ship tours and free boat rides and dockside tours. The Santa Barbara Harbor Merchants Association will sponsor local live entertainment on the main stage.

So, mark your calendars for Oct. 13 and click here for more festival details. For alternative transportation, MTD’s Downtown/Waterfront shuttle runs every 30 minutes from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. from State Street to the harbor.

— Mick Kronman is the harbor operations manager for the City of Santa Barbara.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
