Goleta’s Dam Dinner Returns August 20

We hope you will join us for the return of Goleta’s Dam Dinner! This year’s event will take place Saturday, August 20, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. at the Lake Los Carneros Dam. Due to COVID-19, this popular event had taken a hiatus, but we are thrilled to bring it back for 2022 and hope you will join us for this low-key, special gathering.

Goleta’s Dam Dinner is a free community event bringing together friends and neighbors. Tables and chairs are set-up by the dam with breathtaking views of Lake Los Carneros and the mountains. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own picnic dinner or purchase food from this year’s food vendor, Goodland BBQ! Adult beverages will be for sale. This special event includes live music from local bluegrass group the Salt Martians who are no strangers to the Dam Dinner. There will also be activities for the kids, including a face-painter. Dam Dinner t-shirts will be for sale along with the City’s 20-year anniversary merchandise (t-shirts and mugs).

Goleta’s Dam Dinner is organized by the City of Goleta and Goleta Valley Historical Society with special thanks to Big Hammer Lures, Devereaux, MarBorg and Santa Cruz Market.

We hope to see you at the #BestDamDinner there is!
