De La Guerra Plaza is a small park type area in downtown Santa Barbara, California, USA, located right next to the Santa Barbara News-Press offices. It is best known for the activities that take place there during Santa Barbara's annual Fiesta in early August. There are booths, musical performances and lots of festivities for the downtown area in De La Guerra Plaza. In the 1950s, there was a glass blowing booth[citation needed] where children could buy and take home glass ornaments as souvenirs.


De la Guerra Plaza was a public gathering place and festival area as far back as Santa Barbara's Mexican Alta California era. The plaza is located in front of the de la Guerra Adobe[1]
