Back again this year, a tradition of 48 years! The Dana Point Festival of whales is a two fun-filled weekends, March 2 & 3 and 9 & 10, 2019 . The Festival is free to attend and there are several different activities that have different costs throughout both weekends.
The Festival kicks off with the Whale Parade - on March 2nd at 10am. This is our local - small town - famous parade!
The parade embraces the Festival’s theme of Magical Migration with parade floats and entries decorating in an ocean/whale theme and costumes. Giant helium parade balloons of a Blue Whale, Orca and many other sea life creatures fill the air over head during the parade. The parade promptly begins at 10 AM with a route along Pacific Coast Highway beginning at Selva Road and ending at Golden Lantern in Dana Point, approximately 1 mile. FREE shuttle service to and from Harbor parking lots to the parade viewing area will be available beginning one hour (9 AM) from the parade start time. Come early and enjoy breakfast in the harbor before catching a shuttle to the parade viewing area.
