Know Before You Go
IMPORTANT COVID SAFETY PROTOCOLS ARE IN PLACE THIS SEASON. PLEASE READ THIS INFORMATION CAREFULLY before heading to the Granada for our performances.
The health and safety of our guests, orchestra members, and staff, are our top priority. The Granada Theatre has put the following safety protocols in place: All ticket holders must:
- Provide proof of being fully vaccinated.
Fully vaccinated means you received your Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least 14 days before the show you attend, or you received your second dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine at least 14 days before the show you attend.
Booster doses are not required for any patron.
Proof of vaccination is your CDC vaccination card, a photo or copy of your card or the California digital verification from myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov. Out of state patrons need to present similarly verified records.
- Supply a professionally administered negative Covid-19 test result, for each event, taken within one day for antigen tests and two days for PCR tests.
COVID testing is available at many doctor’s offices and Santa Barbara County testing sites. A list of Santa Barbara County Testing Sites is available here.
Self-administered At-Home tests are NOT accepted
- All patrons 18 years and older must present identification that matches their vaccination or test record.
As of December 1, 2021, no exceptions can be made to this requirement per California State Mega Event rules. As of December 1, 2021, identification accepted will be your Driver’s License or State ID, your school photo ID or your passport. Other photo ID may be considered on a case by case basis. All patrons from ages 3 to 17 without a photo ID must be vouched for and accompanied by a responsible adult. No one under 3 will be admitted.
- Masks are required indoors regardless of vaccination status.
- Doors open 1 hour before concert start time, to accomodate for the extra time to check in guests.
Please give yourself a minimum of 60 minutes extra time! (See section below about pausing pre-concert talks.)
*Protocols at The Granada Theatre are subject to change in compliance with revisions to national, local & presenter guidelines and requirements.
With the closure of State Street to car traffic, the Granada has made some changes to parking options:
- Parking in the public lot behind the Granada Theatre ($5 event parking fee is in place this year. NOTE: The walkway is under construction. Enter by walking up Anapamu)
- For major donors, there is Complimentary Valet Parking, with a new drop off location on the corner of Anapamu and State (1/2 block below the Granada)
- Retirement Community shuttle buses
- Other public parking options downtown
NEW START TIMES - SATURDAY CONCERTS
We have heard your feedback, and we are making changes to our Saturday night concert start times. Saturday night concerts now begin at 7:30PM. Our early birds can get home earlier, and our night owls can continue the party after our concerts.
WHAT'S WITH THE GIANT SPEAKERS?
The Granada Theatre has a brand new state-of-the-art sound system. The large speakers are used when musicians on stage are amplified, and are being used for Kismet and our New Year’s Eve concert. Since we do not amplify the Symphony for any of our other concerts this season, the speakers will be elevated out of sight at future performances.
