Our Ocean

Past Event

February 23, 2018 at Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary Exploration Center

Please join us as we celebrate our ocean and the people in our community who are inspired so deeply by it.

Event Santa Cruz will be taking over the whole Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary Exploration Center for one special night of talks, food, beer, cocktails and super cool one of a kind ocean items to purchase from local vendors. This event will be combining the traditional Event Santa Cruz short lightning talks with our Block Party style events to make a truly unique experience.

Eight + speakers talk about why they do what they do and how the ocean is such a big part of it.
20 + vendors selling ocean themed items.
Great bites from local food vendors.
