The Finish Line Festival

This is not your average run/walk event finish line festival. This unique festival not only celebrates the accomplishments of all the runners and walkers, but the incredible wine, food & music that Santa Barbara County offers. The festival is family-friendly and includes a bounce house as well as games for kids of all ages.

Finish Line Festival Wristbands
All participants will get their Finish Line Festival wristbands at the registration table prior to the run / walk or near the Finish Line Festival as runner & walkers finish. You must have a wristband to enjoy the sponsoring wineries and restaurants.
