On October 13, 2019, from 11am to 4pm, HBAC once again combines two of the town’s foremost art events, Family Arts Day and Art in the Park, to present the second annual Surf City Arts Fest!
For nearly two decades, Family Arts Day has welcomed hundreds of participants into the Art Center’s galleries, studios, and parking lot to share in a day of exploration, art making, and fun! Professional artists lead over 10 unique, hands-on art projects in this intergenerational event. Children and their families will learn together, sharing the benefits of creative development and play.
Again, this year, the fun extends into Triangle Park where approximately 75 artist booths will be set up for Huntington Beach’s very own fine arts and crafts fair. Live music and food and beverage vendors will enhance this art experience, guaranteeing a delightful afternoon in our downtown HB neighborhood for all. A street closure on Main Street between the Art Center and Triangle Park will allow visitors to stroll between the art making, viewing, and shopping, safely and at their leisure.
Since its inception in 2016, the Homeless Task Force has had more than 1,600 occasions to assist individuals with housing referrals, mental and physical health referrals, bus passes, DMV forms, gas cards, food, mailing addresses, and family reunifications
