Looking for a fun and exciting way to meet some of the most influential people in the culinary world? This exciting 3-day event relies heavily on the efforts of our wonderful team of volunteers. Together, we create an unforgettable experience for our guests, chefs and community partners.

We’re expecting 1,500+ culinary enthusiasts, chefs, winemakers, artisan food producers and farmers from Santa Barbara and beyond. The Santa Barbara Culinary Experience (SBCE) offers a wide range of educational cooking classes, seminars and experiences throughout the weekend.


In return for their efforts, volunteers will be offered a ticket to the Friday Opening Reception if they volunteer on Sunday or a ticket to the Sunday Neighborhood Tasting if they volunteer on Friday or Saturday.


Volunteers will also receive a Santa Barbara Culinary Experience lanyard and have the opportunity to meet the most influential people in the local and nationwide culinary scene.


We rely on you, our volunteers, to help make these events successful.


Our event team is looking for individuals that:

> Enjoy people, food and learning about the local and national culinary scene
> Can commit to shifts ranging from 2 – 5 hours on
Friday, Saturday or Sunday
> Have completed the volunteer application in full


We understand that plans change and you may be unable to fulfill your volunteer commitment. Please do not wait until the last minute to notify us.
