Cancelled – Join the Fun, Join the ECOFEST
Due to COVID-19 and the current circumstances we are cancelling our 2020 EcoFest.
It is with extreme sadness that we are cancelling the 2020 EcoFest. We want everyone in our community to remain safe and healthy. Please still enjoy the Ocean and we hope that you can celebrate Earth Day and its 50th Birthday with your family and a small group of peers.
The EcoFest is a free event, fun and highly educational for families and individual of all ages that we organize after Earth Day of Action on Saturday April 25th.
Celebrating the Albatross, the Ocean and the many eco-heroes working to help both, this no-waste event blends live music, famed speakers, refreshments, eco booths, hands on activities, environmental and public safety resources, art and activism together for a memorable day of learning and fun! Help us be sustainable by bringing your own cup, plate and spoon or ride your bike and use our bike corral!

Live Entertainment, Music and Band
The Mermen are an American rock band from San Francisco, California that formed in 1989. The group’s sound was originally rooted in instrumental surf and psychedelic music of the 1960s. Although their music delves into many genres, the sound is non-commercial and is mainly influenced by the band’s founder, songwriter and guitarist Jim Thomas’ modern melodic visions. The band’s music is entirely instrumental and “does a good job of defying description”, not fitting neatly into any musical genre. In concert, the Mermen always perform as a trio: electric guitar, electric bass, and drums. The Mermen have received an extraordinary amount of positive critical review from music press where the songs are described as “instrumental tone poems”, “sonic landscapes”, “wordless odes”. With well over 100 original instrumental compositions to their name, the Mermen have a diverse, expansive repertoire spanning many moods. More on their website.
Keynote Speaker – TBD
How to Get to the EcoFest
FREE BEACH SHUTTLE BUS and FREE PARKING
Free Beach Shuttle from Cabrillo School, 601 Crespi Drive
Parking near the Taco Bell will be very limited so please think about alternative way to come to the EcoFest. We will have free beach shuttle service and free parking at Cabrillo School 601 Crespi Drive.
Handicapped parking spots available near the Taco Bell.
The Beach Shuttle will drive from Cabrillo to Hwy one and go in the main parking lot, drop off in the corner of the main lot. It will then get back on Hwy 1 to the right, turn left on Linda Mar Blvd and turn left on DeSolo and left on Crespi and back to the Cabrillo stop.
There are two shuttles that will be spaced about 5 minutes apart.
