Doheny Surf Festival coming to Dana Point
Hit the beach with Doheny Surf Festival
Surf's up in August at the annual Doheny Surf Festival in Dana Point, where music and preservation will mix under the summer sun. The event, Aug. 11 and 12, draws the surfing community from around the world. The weekend event, produced by the Doheny State Beach Interpretive Association (DSBIA) and the San Onofre Foundation (SOF), raises money towards the preservation of California state parks and beaches.
"It is primarily educational funding, but we are working to support the beaches," says Jim Kempton of the San Onofre Foundation. "One of the great things about the festival is that every dollar raised stays at the local beaches to support and preserve the natural area."
The festival will have booths and art exhibits, surf demonstrations and surfer autograph signings. Music will be provided Fishbone, Paula Fuga, Common Sense, Honk, The Originalities, ALO, The Eliminators, Everlast, and many more spanning both days.
Tickets are already on sale. Camping is also available 120 overnight campsites. A two day pass costs $49.00 and includes entry and re-entry to the festival, and all events. Single day admission is available, with an early bird special of $29.00 until July 10. For more information on this wonderful event, please visit their website at dohenysurffest.com.
