night market

Santa Barbara's Downtown Organization has parted ways with one of its longtime staff members and organizers Kate Schwab.

Schwab left the group this week; no reason for her departure was provided.

A popular Santa Barbara holiday night market that had been slated for a November opening in the Paseo Nuevo mall has been cancelled.

The market, which had been set to run from late November through December, has a conflict with its landlord over the lease.
