Ocean Institute Fest


Ocean Institute Fest: Culinary-Music Festival
September 11 and 12, 2020

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 information, visit oifest.org.
