Earl Warren truly is a gift to our community. What takes place there educates and entertains people of all ages over a wide range of interests. It helps bolster the local economy and provides a place for those who protect us to both hone their skills during training and locate command centers when disasters actually strike. What we've all gained from a healthy Showgrounds facility has cost little over the past 50 years. It's now time to re-energize Earl Warren as the unique events venue it has always been. Please help us bring this facility back to the standards that Santa Barbara expects and deserves.
