The Chamber is very excited to celebrate the 64th Annual Carpinteria Community Awards Gala on April 1 at Rincon Beach Club.

This special event brings together the community to honor those who have gone above and beyond to give back to Carpinteria, support our youth, and recognize our area’s non-profits. 

This year, a Special Recognition Award will be given to Dave Durflinger – City of Carpinteria Manager for his 24 years of service to the community as he looks forward to celebrating his retirement at the end of this year. 

The event includes honoring two extraordinary educators of the year who will receive funding for classroom supplies; a Junior Carpinterian of the Year and two runners-up, all of which are awarded scholarships; merit awards honoring volunteers from the Carpinteria Community, service clubs, and various nonprofits; and, at the end of the evening, the Carpinterian of the Year will be announced. 

Nominations for Carpinterian of the Year and Jr. Carpinterian of the Year are open until February 24.
