Welcome to Easter at the Santa Barbara Courthouse Sunken Garden

Every year, we welcome thousands of people from our community and beyond to our Easter Service at the Santa Barbara Courthouse Sunken Garden. This event is sponsored by Calvary Chapel Santa Barbara. Easter at the Courthouse Sunken Gardens is Sunday, April 1st at 9am. You’ll enjoy live music, a message of hope, a fun children’s area, and refreshments.


A Message of Hope from Pastor Tommy Schneider

"Home" is the title of this year's Easter message. Our home is so fragile... With natural disasters and an uncertain future we have seen how temporary our home on the Earth is. Jesus told us before He ascended to Heaven that He was going to prepare a place for us in His Father's house. There is a home waiting for us with foundations that cannot be shaken when we accept the free gift of God's salvation.


Location & Parking

The Santa Barbara Courthouse Sunken Garden is located directly behind the courthouse (1100 Anacapa Street). Free parking is available in the parking lots across the street from the courthouse by the library and behind the nearby Granada Theatre.


Kids’ Fun Area

Hundreds of children join us for our dynamic kids’ program featuring live music, a child-appropriate message, and age-appropriate classrooms. We strive to have a program that is spiritually enriching, fun, and safe for our kids! 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-stream. Or better yet, 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.
