Right Whale Festival

Come to the Sea Walk Pavilion in Jacksonville Beach on December 5 and celebrate the critically endangered North Atlantic right whales’ annual return to the coast of the Southeast U.S. Be on the shores of the only known right whale calving area at the beginning of their calving season. The Festival will have live entertainment, food, kid’s activities, beach cleanup, beach run, exhibitions, and much more.
With as few as 350 remaining, North Atlantic right whales are in jeopardy and are often threatened by human activities. The mission of the Right Whale Festival is to celebrate right whales and the beginning of their calving season. The goal is to engage the community and heighten public awareness of both right whales and the importance of the area as the whales make their seasonal return to the waters off FL/GA coast — the only known North Atlantic right whale calving grounds. This one-day family-oriented festival will feature children’s activities, music, beach cleanup, and other activities geared towards informing and inspiring the community about right whales, their habitat, and conservation needs.
The Festival is from 10 am – 4 pm
Beach Cleanup will be from 9 – 11 am
Silent Auction 9 am – 3 pm
Music 12 noon – 4 pm
