Old Spanish Days, the organizing group for Santa Barbara’s Fiesta, has named its leadership and executive team for the 94th edition of the event, set for Aug. 1-5, 2018.

The executive committee includes the eighth Fiesta la presidente, who will lead the organization, as well as five division chiefs, who will oversee a variety of events from celebrations to pageantry, dance and entertainment, mercados and external relations.

The 2018 Old Spanish Days Executive Committee will include La Presidente Denise Sanford, who joined the OSD Board in 2002; La Primera Vice Presidente Barbara Carroll; El Segundo Vice Presidente Erik Davis; La Secretaria Stephanie Petlow; and La Tesorera Angela Miller-Bevan.

“It is my honor to represent Old Spanish Days as the 2018 la presidente,” Sanford said.

“Fiesta provides our community an opportunity to celebrate traditions and the spirit of people coming together. Fiesta supports other nonprofits in our community and provides the opportunity to help support their organizations,” she said.

The 2018 OSD Fiesta division chiefs are: Alex Castellaños (celebrations), Michelle Bischoff (dance and entertainment), David Bolton (external relations, education and history), Jim Wilcox (marketplaces), and Will Powers (pageantry).

“I’ve been on the board since 2002 and I have had the opportunity of serving on many committees in many areas of the organization,” said Sanford.

“Having the opportunity to help the Santa Barbara community celebrate a longstanding tradition of history, continuing and growing to get closer to our 100th anniversary has been exciting and meaningful," she said.

"Old Spanish Days is a working board made up of volunteers from all areas of the community,” she said.

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!
