Dana Point Festival of Whales

Mark your calendar’s because one of Southern California’s best festivals is taking place on March 3 & 4 and March 10& 11. The majestic, California Gray Whale will begin their migration in late November, but from March 3 – 4 and 10 – 11 hundreds of these 35-ton leviathans will splash through Dana Point during the 41st annual Dana Point Festival of Whales.

Festival highlights include an opening day parade, Whale of a Block Party, art exhibits, classic car exhibits, paddling events, sand sculpting, concerts on land and water, environmental activities, educational opportunities, interpretive crafts, kids activities, and of course, whale watching!

The festival is free and super fun for the entire family.

FREE Shuttle Service is available every day of the Festival from 10 am to 4:30 pm (extended service hours on the first Saturday to accommodate the parade and the last Sunday to accommodate the Grunion Run and Concert on the Water only).  Park and ride free all day long and migrate with the whales!

I hope to see you there!
