In response to both the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department health order and the California Department of Public health guidance on gatherings, the Executive Board of the Santa Barbara Newcomers Club has unanimously decided to cancel all upcoming Newcomers events and meetings, effective immediately, until the current situation improves.

All upcoming events are cancelled, although some events may be postponed to a later date, when possible.

Thank you for you patience and understanding as our city, county, and nations around the globe work through this issue.

Please contact Curt Luthy, President, if you have any questions.



We are the Santa Barbara Newcomers Club!

We are a 700+ member social club designed to introduce newcomers to Santa Barbara while meeting new friends and learning about our beautiful new community together. Our monthly calendar has over 70 activities to choose from, and has something for everyone.

We have monthly Parties and Get-Togethers at member homes and local restaurants; Shared Interest groups are developed as we grow, including book clubs,  gardening, current events, and maybe starting your own 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.  Outdoor Life events will take you hiking, biking, golfing, walking and much more, and an active Young Professionals group.  And so much more!
