Huntington Beach hosts a number of annual events and festivals throughout the year. From the popular US Open of Surfing at the beach to the BB Jazz Festival in Huntington Central Park, these events are family-friendly affairs where everyone is welcome to attend.
Surfing fans flock to the US Open of Surfing each summer, but Surf City USA hosts over 50 surfing competitions each year. On any given weekend, you'll find pop-up tents along the shoreline, a sure sign of a local surfing competition.
Each summer, the International Surfing Museum hosts the Surfin' Sundays Concert Series, which takes place next to the Huntington Beach Pier in Pier Plaza and at the Surfing Museum's parking lot. BB Jazz also holds quarterly jazz concerts and a Christmas Celebration at the Huntington Central Library Theater, along with their popular BB Jazz Festival in Central Park each September.
Car enthusiasts have a plethora of options, from the Huntington Beachcruiser Meet in downtown Huntington Beach every March to the Concours d'Elegance in Huntington Central Park each June to the Surf City Garage Car Show each August.
Families celebrating our nation's independence will enjoy the 4th of July Celebration, held each summer in downtown Huntington Beach. Featuring the largest parade west of the Mississippi River, fireworks over the Huntington Beach Pier and a three-day festival at Pier Plaza, the city comes alive in red, white and blue.
