Coastal Country Jam
Sweet tunes take over Huntington State Beach in late June. Concert goers of all ages soak in live music (that complements the stunning backdrop) as well as highlights like a Ferris wheel, line dancing and art installations. The set times get released the week prior to the event on the Jam’s website and Facebook page.
Surf City Marathon
In early February, runners from near and far lace up for this award-winning course, considered one of the country’s best. The race pushes off along the Pacific Coast Highway and passes Huntington Beach and the beautiful Bolsa Chica Wetlands. The final stretch takes athletes by a motivating lineup of Main Street cheerleaders; post-finish line celebrations happen on the beach—at the uber-festive Sand Bar.
Vans US Open of Surfing
Surf’s up! Since 1959, this water-centric spectacular has taken over Huntington Beach to showcase some of the slickest surfers around. Having evolved into one of the U.S.’s largest action sports festivals, this majorly competitive event (in late July/early August) not only showcases the best in surfing, but also entertainers, artists, skateboarders and BMX competitors, too.
Aerial Acrobatics in Surf City, USA
This free-to-the-public, mid-October extravaganza fills the skies over Surf City with aerial acrobatics you won’t want to miss.
