The 27th Annual Orchard 2 Ocean (O2O) 5K, 10K and 1 Mile Fun Run. It's an event for both elite and casual runners/walkers and provides much needed funds for Carpinteria Education Foundation.

Orchard 2 Ocean has become a favorite among Santa Barbara County and Ventura County runners with its beautiful course and delicious after-race food/drinks. The coastal view course runs along the Carpinteria State Park Campground, along the Carpinteria Bluffs, returning through the very friendly Concha Loma Community. A fast course, usually providing many PRs for the competitive runner!

The school year is about to start, so what better way to kick it off than a Back to School celebration? Come on out and support Carpinteria Education Foundation.

ONE NIGHT ONLY: Save $5 on Carp-a-Cabana tickets if purchased at Corktree!

Guest bartenders include our our amazing board members: President Casey Balch, Vice President Jessica Isaac, Sarah Smith & Nikki Yamaoka, along with Beth Cox, one of our long time supporters.

Carpinteria High School

September 7, 2019

Carpinteria Education Foundation has once again partnered with six amazing eateries in Carpinteria who will be donating a percentage of their revenue from the third Wednesday of every month to CEF to support CUSD students. Please join us in supporting our wonderful students by visiting your favorite places all for a great cause!


The 26th Annual Carp-a-Cabana was a huge success! CUSD elementary students had not had consistent art instruction since 2004. Diana Rigby, Superintendent, led the charge to bring quality art instruction back to our students through a partnership with Children's Creative Project.

Mac Brown Excavating donated $40,000 to establish an Art Fund. The Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation donated $35,500 from the proceeds of the Katy Perry benefit concert to complete funding of the first year of the Visual Arts, Dance, Theater & Vocal Music program. This year, Carp-a-Cabana raised more than $70,000 toward the Art Fund to ensure our students will continue to experience the arts at school for years to come.
