The Charter Communications Long Beach Sea Festival is the city’s annual summer-long series of outdoor events, including world-class sporting events like the Transpac Yacht Race from California to Hawaii, one of the world’s most prestigious sailing races, and the Crocs AVP Pro Beach Volleyball Tour. Family events include movies on the beach, theater performances and a wide variety of recreational events.
"Each year the Long Beach Sea Festival brings together world-class athletes and some of the most exciting sporting competitions in the country," said Phil Hester, Director of Parks, Recreation and Marine, one of the organizers of Sea Festival. "Long Beach is a city of fun and sun, making it the perfect venue for all sorts of outdoor activities."
The first official Sea Festival event was the Long Beach Bayou Festival, a three-day program of New Orleans music and food, celebrating the diversity of Long Beach on two separate stages at Rainbow Lagoon Park.
"There is something for everyone at Sea Festival this year," added Hester. "The variety and diversity of events that make up Sea Festival each year are what makes Long Beach such a great place to live and the perfect place to visit."
