Cabrillo Marine Aquarium

Featured Event

Autumn Sea Fair
Sunday, October 16
10am - 3pm

The richness and diversity of the sea, combined with fun-in-the-sun games and hometown spirit, can all be found at Cabrillo Marine Aquarium's Autumn Sea Fair!

This unique event offers ocean-related activities for every age, including face-painting, an exciting marine life puppet show, and a giant origami demonstration. Adventurous pirates of all ages can join in the search for buried treasure in the "Great Treasure Hunt," learn how to cast a fishing line, and for those with the competitive spirit, join in on the "Beach Olympics."

Don't miss the opportunity to stop by and chat with more than two dozen marine-related organizations that will be present to share their information and activities with you; or visit one of our artisans and check out their beautiful and unique hand-crafted pieces of art.

Enjoy live music playing throughout the day; experience the unique jazz stylings of Harold Greene on the Chapman Stick; the Japanese Drum group Kokoro Taiko and the smooth sounds of Stucco Rainbow. Join us for this annual celebration of marine life and community spirit.

Autumn Sea Fair is a FREE event.
