The Santa Barbara South Coast Chamber is excited to announce the return of the Goleta Lemon Festival, presented by Rusty’s Pizza Parlor, on September 24 & 25 at Girsh Park.

The Community West Bank Food Court will include treats like lemonade, lemon tacos, lemon cotton candy and Rusty’s pizza!
While 30,000+ festival goers’ explore and shop, they will enjoy live entertainment on the American Riviera Main Stage in a wide variety of musical styles, including Rock, Country, Blues, R&B, and more.
