Please leave your pets at home! Pets are discouraged at the Santa Barbara Harbor & Seafood Festival.
We believe that due to the very large crowds in such a small area, that bringing a pet such as a dog, may cause your pet undue stress as well as undue stress for the owner. We had over 14,000 people attend our event last year. It was even crowded for people to walk around so imagine the poor dog worrying about getting their toes stepped on by some large human. We urge pet owners to leave their pets at home. Please leave your pet in a nice cool environment (home, hotel room) and when you return home, tell your pet all about the adventure that you had at the Seafood Festival and how wise you were for not bringing your pet into such a crowded environment.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
