The Monterey Beach SportsFest is a two-day festival celebrating the ocean lifestyle on Monterey’s Del Monte Beach, nestled between downtown Monterey and the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Participants and spectators will be inspired to care for the ocean as they directly connect to it through the athletic events in and adjacent to the sea, and through interaction with the educational and conservation resources available at the two-day “Healthy People, Healthy Oceans” Expo.

Events

There are plenty of activities on both land and sea to keep elite and amateur athletes at bay. Sporting events include open-water swims, beach volleyball, ocean water polo, and a Splash and Dash. The Monterey Beach SportsFest also hosts an Ikaika Challenge which is a combination of swimming, strength and running. The Ikaika challenge offers something for every level of athlete with short, long and relay courses.

Expo

“The Healthy People, Healthy Ocean” Expo invites competitors and spectators to learn from wellness experts as well as leaders from ocean-related groups. The Expo features several booths located between The Wharf Marketplace and Del Monte Beach on Saturday from 9am-4pm and Sunday from 10am-3pm.
