Dana Point Festival of Whales
The Festival of Whales celebrates migrating whales who use Dana Point's headland as a landmark on their journey southward. Festivities include whale watching, a street fair, a parade, and an art show.
Most of the festival’s traditional events and attractions are returning to the schedule this year, and a few virtual events are back, as well.
The festival will also include a Mobile Marine Mammal Museum, a cardboard Dingy Dash, the Ocean Institute-Ocean Education Center, and a rubber ducky race. Kids can take boat rides and SUP lessons, participate in sand sculpting, and watch movies under the stars. Bands perform on the water on a specially designed stage for the Concert on the Water.
