Santa Bárbara d'Oeste (Portuguese for "Santa Barbara of the West") is a municipality in the state of São Paulo in Brazil. The population in 2006 is around 200,000 inhabitants and the area is 272.27km². The elevation is 1,886 ft (575 meters). In the late 1860s Confederate refugees from the American Civil War (known as Confederados) settled in the region. Among them, there was William Hutchinson Norris, a senator from Alabama. Their descendants still hold an annual Confederate picnic on the second Sunday in April that features typical southern American foods like biscuits, fried chicken and hot dogs, as well Confederate songs sung in Brazilian-Portuguese accents.

Santa Barbara has several museums and tourist attractions, including the Immigration Museum.
