Big Bang Birthday BashInitiated in 2000, the annual Mission Creek Gala is a festive evening to celebrate the work of the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History and generate support for its scientific and educational mission of inspiring a passion for the natural world.

The Mission Creek Gala sustains the Museum's outstanding education program which touches the lives of 20,000 school children each year through school tours, classes, storytelling, camps, the Nature Collection lending library, and outreach at the Mission Canyon campus and Sea Center.

In celebration of the Museum’s Centennial year in 2016, the Mission Creek Gala will be an extraordinarily special event. Committee members from the past 16 Galas were invited to return to help create this unique, once in a lifetime fundraiser. Guests can expect beautiful décor, sumptuous cuisine, and dancing into the evening, all to raise funds for the incredible Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. Please call 805.682.4711 ext. 109 with any questions.
