First Ever Huntington Beach Food, Art & Music Festival To Rock Our Sands
Here in Huntington Beach, we never give our sands a break. We host surf competitions, volleyball tournaments, and beach cleanups along our shoreline, and we rock out with the Pacific Ocean as our backdrop. Come the first weekend of September, the first ever Huntington Beach Food, Art & Music Festival will take place on the sands of Huntington State Beach at Beach Boulevard and Pacific Coast Highway. It looks to be three days of musical throwback, tasty treats, and curated art, and we sincerely hope festival-goers respect our beach and keep it eco-awesome.
