Welcome to Santa Barbara during this very unusual time.
We are hosting a variety of virtual events via Zoom, such as book clubs, exercise and dance classes, discussion groups, and happy hours; also, the Board meets monthly via Zoom.
New members are always welcome, and we encourage you to join.
All memberships are being extended until the club resumes more normal operations; meaning that all new members will have their full two years (with an optional third year) from the time that the club reopens.
In response to the latest guidance from both the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department and the California Department of public health, the Santa Barbara Newcomers Club will slowly begin holding some in-person events soon. These events will be limited, small, focused on exercise, and held outdoors.
We are now offering a virtual orientation via Zoom for new members!
Please see our calendar of events for more information.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as our city, county, and nations around the globe manage through this crisis.
We are the Santa Barbara Newcomers Club!
We are a 650+ member social club designed to introduce newcomers to Santa Barbara. We can meet new friends and learn about our beautiful new community together. Our monthly calendar has many activities to choose from, and has something for everyone.
There are regular ‘virtual’ events via Zoom, and soon, outdoor events will take you hiking, biking, golfing, walking and more.
Shared Interest groups are developed as we grow, including book clubs, gardening, and current events. You can even start a new group based upon an interest you have. Exploring Santa Barbara events open the doors for you to performing arts, local heritage tours, architecture and design tours and visual arts events at various galleries and artist studios. Service to the Community events will expose you to the philanthropic work of Santa Barbara so you can find areas where you would like to serve the community…and so much more!
