Whale Fiesta
Sunday, January 27, 2019
10am - 3pm


Join us in celebrating the 49th annual Whale Fiesta! This fun-filled family event, co-sponsored by Cabrillo Marine Aquarium and the Los Angeles Chapter of the American Cetacean Society, celebrates marine mammals and the migration of Pacific gray whales along Southern California's coast.

Several marine life organizations will exhibit and provide information about their efforts to raise awareness and provide protection for these animals. Throughout the day expert Cabrillo Whalewatch naturalists will give talks on various marine mammals.

The highlight of the day is the Great Duct Tape Whale Contest, where model whales and other sea creatures are created by all ages. Other special activities throughout the day include face painting, music, marine mammal-related arts and crafts projects for all ages, a puppet show, a life-sized walk-through whale and a passport contest for fabulous prizes.

The celebration’s grand finale will be Whale Dynamics, where participants will be transformed into a single "living whale."

The Aquarium’s Exploration Center, Aquatic Nursery and the Library will be open to visitors 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Spend the whole day enjoying all the activities for free!

Whale Fiesta is a FREE event sponsored by the Port of Los Angeles.
