More FUN THINGS TO DO

 

“Joing le plaisir et être le plaisir.” (Join the Fun and be the fun.)

 

The entertainment doesn’t stop at the stage. Fun flows throughout the festival. Sit and indulge in the cuisine, relax with some delicious French wine or beer, enjoy a demonstration of period armored combat, or join the French Conversation Booth.  While the youngsters keep you hip to the scavenger hunt, have their faces painted, or pet the Grand Marshalette of our Canine Cavalcade, Jellie Beanz.

 

Speaking of the Canine Cavalcade~ When we say fun for the “entire family”, we mean the ENTIRE FAMILY. So, remember your dog-&-people-friendly canine family members. The Festival is on-leash dog-friendly and features The Annual Canine Cavalcade ~ a parade for you and your dogs on Saturday & Sunday at 6:00.

 

You still won’t want your adventure to end, so we have the Santa Barbara Travel Bureau booth to help it last by showing an array of boutique adventures and excursions.

Pétanque

 

Exercise your hand and brain while playing the French game of Pétanque.

 

Pronounced "pay-tonk", one of Europe's most popular outdoor games, is a cousin of both horseshoes and of the Italian bowling game called 'bocce'. The game originated in the South of France in the early 1900's.

French Conversation Booth

 

Converse and Play: Parlez vous Francais? Have a seat and enjoy a chat with other fluent or practicing French speakers.

 

While there, enjoy a game of Mille Bornes, French for “A thousand milestones” it is listed in GAMES Magazine Hall Of Fame.

 

The premise of Mille Bornes is that the players are in a road race. Each race—or hand—is usually 700 miles (or kilometers) long, but the first player to complete that distance exactly has the option to declare an extension in which case the race becomes 1,000 miles.

Raffle

 

Win Prizes and Raise Funds for one of the most charming and giving theaters in Santa Barbara.

 

All proceeds benefit Center Stage Theater and Speaking of Stories.

Scavenger Hunt

 

Recently one of our favorite little droids had a grand Parisian adventure.  Photos from his excursion are hidden around the Festival.  Collect them and win great prizes – free drinks, t-shirts, theater tickets and more!

Photo Ops galore

 

Snap a selfie with Napoleon, become Mona Lisa, talk your friends into the jaws of the guillotine, or join the Canine Cavalcade with your dog.

Guilde de St. Marie

 

We’ll take you back to 16th Century France with live actors and actresses meandering the festival in authentic characters and costume of the “Court Of Blood and Silk,” a group of various courtiers vying for the attention of the Royal Family of 1581.
