KelpFest 2024

 Laguna Ocean Foundation is excited to announce that this year’s KelpFest is held on World Oceans Day, Saturday, June 8th!
We invite you to celebrate with us along the Cobblestones of Main Beach from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm.

Hosted by Laguna Ocean Foundation with the support of dedicated partner organizations, KelpFest celebrates Laguna Beach’s unique shoreline, our vital coastal resources, and the kelp that supports them. This FREE festival features music from Mana and the Garden Band, ocean awareness activities, informational booths, games and art.

Join us for the welcoming ceremony at 10:00AM where Adelia Sandoval, Juaneño Band of Mission Indians/Acjachemen Nation, will provide a blessing for the event. Followed by Assemblymember Diane Dixon who will be making the exciting announcement about the official California State Seashell.

Keep an eye out for special appearances throughout the day from ResilienSEA Immersive! Catch the mesmerizing movements of a Seaweed Nymph or get wrapped up in conversation with a chatty Garibaldi as they immerse you into the world of kelp forests, conservation, and climate action. 

KelpFest is supported by the generous donations of local organizations and businesses which helps keep this event free every year. If you’re interested in sponsoring KelpFest, please contact Alayna Ader at or click the button below to learn more about the different levels of sponsorship.
