Even with the brush fire raging in the Los Padres National Forrest, the Guilde of Sainte Marie will still be performing at the Santa Barbara French Festival as the Court of Henri III of France! The show must go on, and we love this event and venue!
We are incredibly excited to celebrate all things French ⚜️👑⚜️
The 2016 French Festival was a smashing success! The Guilde was asked to be a part of the festival like never before - having been placed front and center directly behind the Eiffel Tower Stage! We had a lovely time interacting, teaching history and playing Petanque!
Center Stage Theatre and Speaking of Stories should be commended on a marvelous event! Thank you Santa Barbara French Festival for a lovely year and we look forward to even more involvement next season!
This coming weekend come and join the Guilde of Sainte Marie as we perform as the Court of Henri III of France at the annual Santa Barbara French Festival!
Delicious French food and wine await! Arts and crafts abound! A Poodle Parade sponsored by French Bulldogs! And us, in all our courtly glory!
This weekend the Guilde of Sainte Marie will be journeying out to the shire of Kern, to Camden by the Lake (California City) to experience Tortoise Days - and to help promote the California City Renaissance and Fantasy Faire! Please drop by and have fun with us!
