This week, Ocean Institute made the very difficult decision
to postpone Ocean Institute Fest, our largest fundraiser, to
ensure that this important night is free from any worry or
concern from our esteemed guests. This postponement
injures our Adopt-A-Class program, which
benefits thousands of low-income students each year, as
the proceeds from the event directly support that program.
Tickets are now on sale for Ocean Institute Fest 2020
Culinary-Music Festival, previously known as the Jazz Festival.
Ocean Institute has been an iconic entry to life-changing moments
through ocean education for over forty years. We humbly invite
you to join this rich history of supporters who create the moment
that changes everything and anchors us in our community. For more
The Jazz Festival is the Ocean Institute’s biggest fundraiser of
the year and proceeds directly support our Adopt-A-Class program.
Adopt-A-Class gives underserved students the life-changing
opportunity of being immersed in hands-on STEM education at the
Ocean Institute. Enjoy gourmet food, top jazz musicians and a
beautiful sunset over Dana Point Harbor while knowing you are
contributing to critical education for under-served children.
