Welcome to Easter at the Santa Barbara Courthouse Sunken Garden

Every year, we welcome thousands of people from our community and beyond to Santa Barbara’s Easter Service at the Santa Barbara Courthouse Sunken Gardens. This celebration marks the twentieth year of celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This event is sponsored by Calvary Chapel Santa Barbara. Easter at the Courthouse Sunken Gardens is Sunday, April 16th at 9am. You’ll enjoy live music, a fun children’s area, refreshments, and Nick Vujicic from Life Without Limbs sharing a message of hope that could change your life.

Kids’ Fun Area

Hundreds of children join us for our dynamic kids’ program featuring live music, a child-appropriate message, and age-appropriate classrooms. The main purpose of our program is that our kids have fun and are safe! Each year we have new activities for kids and take-home crafts. Our team of qualified volunteers and first-aid workers ensure your kids will have a fun and safe Easter experience.


Join us Live Online

Even if you cannot make it to the Easter service this year, tune in live! We will be live-streaming the entire service at calvarysb.com/live-streaming. Or better, come to the service and share the live-stream with someone who can’t attend. Just copy the link and email/text it to a friend or post it to your social media. A recording of the service will be available online later that afternoon.
