White Rock Sea Festival

On August 4 and 5, join us for the annual White Rock Sea Festival at East Beach and enjoy a variety of family-friendly activities throughout the weekend.

The festival kicks off Friday night with an open-air cinema at Semiahmoo Park.  Saturday highlights include Pirates in the Park, children’s sandcastle competition, two stages of live entertainment, a headlining performance and the day ends with a magical fireworks display.  Sunday’s highlights include a stand up paddleboard competition, beach games, live entertainment and the fun filled festival concluded with the much-anticipated Torchlight Parade.  As the sun sets on the bay, the Torchlight Parade begins and you can see the lit up floats twinkle by as they head east on Marine Drive.
