The Exhibit Hall at the Earl Warren Showgrounds was originally constructed as the permanent home for the Santa Barbara National Flower Show. The unique structure was designed to resemble a giant daisy with 43′ foot dome ceiling at the flowers center and eight pedals extending in all directions. The Exhibit Building covers 22,000 square feet and has built-in box offices, a deli facility and full kitchen facility.
The Exhibit Building is a multi-use facility, flexible enough to be used for a variety of events.
The Versatile Exhibit Hall is a blank canvas upon which the creative party planner can produce spectacular themed events for business meetings, holiday parties or fund raising events.
The facility has hosted sit-down dinners of up to 1,200 people.
The Exhibit Hall can be easily converted into a impressive trade show or exhibit venue and has housed as many as 105 (8’x10′) pipe and drape trade-show booths.
The building has hosted many trade shows including Antique Shows, Gem Fairs, and is home to the annual Santa Barbara International Orchid Show
The building can be equipped with a stage, background curtains and chairs making it an effective venue for concerts, lecture events, dances and sporting events.
