Welcome to Rainbow Happy Hour, the friendliest, most colorful group of LGBTQ+ friends and acquaintances, right here in the heart of California's Central Coast, the heart of the American Riviera ... Santa Barbara, California.


The Santa Barbara LGBTQ+ Community is comprised of local business persons, entrepreneurs, civic and community leaders, and (most importantly) lots of dedicated, involved citizens of our little slice of paradise!

Santa Barbara LGBTQ+ community members get together regularly on the LAST TUESDAY of every month at a local establishment for networking, socializing, and fun. Each month there's a theme (for what to wear), so be sure to check our Events Page, our Facebook Page, or subscribe to our newsletter to get the scoop.


We love to raise funds for the Pacific Pride Foundation, or other area charities serving the Santa Barbara LGBTQ+ community, so come "party with a purpose" and give a little back to those who need it most!

Come join us for networking, catching up with old (and new) friends, or just come celebrate in a community-positive atmosphere!  There's no cost, and our events offer a no-host bar. We're straight-friendly too, but you must be 21+ (with valid ID) to enter.


We change our location each month to support the many wonderful local businesses in our community and to keep things fresh and lively, so check back often to our Events Page or else subscribe to our newsletter and we'll keep you informed.

If you have any questions or would like to help out or recommend a venue for an upcoming mixer, let us hear from you!

Santa Barbara's LGBTQ+ connects here!
