Join Artist Boat in bringing the international celebration of the ocean to Galveston, Texas! It's oceans of fun, and the Artist Boat World Oceans Day Festival will inspire you to protect our seas and the Texas Coast.

Engage in fun and educational activities hosted by partner organizations, learn about the human connection to the ocean, and enjoy live entertainment! Come celebrate with us on the ocean's doorstep at Stewart Beach in Galveston, Texas, on Friday June 8th from 4pm-8pm. Ocean-lovers of all ages are welcome! The event is free, but Stewart Beach parking fees apply.

The Artist Boat World Oceans Day Festival also hosts the Marine Debris Art Contest, where participants can enter art pieces composed of trash that was collected from or could otherwise end up in our waterways. Festival visitors can help vote on the contest winners.
