Sat
COAST Summer Solstice Party @ Pacific Premier Bank
Jun 23 @ 11:30 am – 2:00 pm

Join COAST as we celebrate the Summer Solstice Celebration with front row seats at the parade, tacos, beer, and margaritas!  We will also have the World Cup playing on screens in the bank lobby.  One hundred percent of the proceeds go towards supporting COAST’s general advocacy programs.

COAST promotes healthy and sustainable ways of getting around, from walking and biking, to taking the train and bus.  We coordinate the region’s Safe Routes to School Program, Santa Barbara Walks, Safe Routes for Seniors, and Vision Zero initiative.

Tickets are a $25 suggested donation.  For $30, you get a ticket AND an annual COAST membership (new members only)!

Tickets available @ coastsolstice2018.eventbrite.com

We also accept cash, check, major debit/credit cards at the door.

IMPORTANT:  Please note that seating on the parade route is limited, and we cannot guarantee a ticket for the event will guarantee a seat.  Contact Joanna Kaufman, COAST Program Director, if you have an elderly or mobility-challenged guest prior to the event to talk about seating options.

Fall Gathering in Pictures!

Our Fall Gathering fundraiser gala was a wonderfully successful evening of sharing stories, smiles and the joys of sustainable transportation efforts across Santa Barbara County.  No one epitomized that more than our annual Barry Siegel Award recipient, Ed France, Executive Director of the SB Bike Coalition and Bici Centro!  Our silent auction was a big hit, with an array of diverse auction items (generously donated from area businesses) going to the winning high bidders.  Take a look back at that night by ‘strolling’ through our photo slideshow!  Thanks to all those who attended and contributed to our best Fall Gathering yet!  Until next year, keep supporting the many sustainable transportation modes Santa Barbara has to offer!

Thanks to Our Fall Gathering Sponsors!

COAST thanks our generous sponsors who helped make this our best Fall Gathering yet!
