2024 “WhaleFest” Earth Day Fest: Whale Watching, Speakers & Clean Ups (Pacifica)

Saturday, April 20, 2024 - 10:30 am to 1:30 pm | Cost: FREE
Linda Mar State Beach | Hwy 1 and Linda Mar Blvd., Pacifica, CA

Event Details

Join us at WhaleFest, an Earth Day celebration at Linda Mar State Beach in Pacifica on April 20th from 10:30 AM to 1:30 PM. Presented by the Pacific Beach Coalition this event invites the Bay Area to discover and celebrate our local whales.

Booths will line the North Parking Lot with engaging activities for adults and children, to learn about whales and other local nature! Join environmental and community groups, and inspirational speakers as we celebrate Earth Day and keep watch for whale sightings just offshore.

WhaleFest will follow a morning of taking action from 9 – 11 AM via getting our heads dirty by volunteering at cleanups and habitat restoration locations around the peninsula. 

More than just an event, WhaleFest is a movement towards preserving our planet’s future, offering a chance to connect with nature and like-minded individuals.

Disclaimer: Please double check event information with the event organizer as events can be canceled, details can change after they are added to our calendar, and errors do occur.
