Corporate & Culinary Sponsors

Corporate Sponsors

“American Riviera Bank has been a proud sponsor of the Lobero Theatre for four years. To take advantage of the Lobero’s diverse programming we sponsor a different performance each season and bring clients to enjoy the show. We appreciate that flexibility and feel privileged to be involved at such an important time in its history. American Riviera Bank is thrilled to support the Lobero, and we cannot wait to bring our clients into the newly renovated theatre.”

– Jeff DeVine, President & CEO, American Riviera Bank



Become a Corporate Sponsor and receive great benefits for your company.

Because Lobero LIVE events appeal to a discerning and sophisticated audience, a Corporate Sponsorship is an ideal vehicle to increase presence and awareness of your product to your potential customers. However, perhaps the greatest dividend comes from the tremendous amount of public exposure as a good corporate community member supporting one of Santa Barbara’s cultural treasures.

Corporate Sponsorships are available at the $5,000 & $10,000 levels. Lobero sponsors receive many direct benefits, as you can see listed. Click here for more.

The Lobero wishes to thank our Corporate Sponsors. Click through the logos to learn more about each of them.

Fess Parker Winery & Vineyard

Driving north along the pastoral Foxen Canyon Wine Trail feels like traveling back to California’s early days. Rolling hills frame vast meadows, deer and wildlife roam free, and pristine landscapes stretch as far as the eye can see. This peaceful environment enticed the late Fess Parker into buying a 714-acre ranch here back in 1988. The Texas-born actor, who played the television roles of Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone in the 1950s and 1960s, had moved his family to Santa Barbara in the early 1960s and begun construction of a blufftop home. When heavy rains caused it to collapse onto the beach, he revised his plans and headed inland.

There, he discovered the Foxen Canyon property, where he initially planned to run cattle, plant a few grapes to sell to other vintners, and establish a small winery. Parker, an only child, dreamed of starting a family business that he could pass on to future generations. He asked his children to join him, and they planted a five-acre experimental Riesling vineyard in 1989. Eli, his son, started as assistant winemaker and spent three years under the tutelage of acclaimed enologist Jed Steele before taking the helm. Eli then planted more vines and started a four-year project to build a cutting-edge winery and tasting room.

In 1983, Greg O'Brien, purchased the business from its original owner, and introduced delivery service - and our famous breadsticks! In 2014, new owners Casey and Shaina Groves took over the historic pizzeria. Being longtime loyal customers of Taffy's, they knew that this was the next adventure for their family. We look forward to continuing Taffy's tradition while updating our space and menu to reflect our community's changing tastes.
