2018: The Summer of Beach Fest Cleanup Challenge!

Help raise awareness about the importance of sustaining and improving our coastal resources!  Help in cleaning up all the beaches you attend this summer.  We are issuing the official:

Summer of Carlsbad Beach Fest Cleanup Challenge!®  Every time you go to the beach this summer, bring a small bag and gloves and clean up the local beaches around you.  Take a photo of your catch and post it on your social media accounts and tag us (Twitter: #cbeachfest; Facebook: @carlsbadbeachfest; Instagram: @carlsbadbeachfest).  The person who posts the most locations and photos with hash tags will get a special gift at the end of the summer.

Challenge your friends and family to do the same.  It’s a great way to help the environment and give back to your local community.  Remember: be sure to tag Carlsbad Beach Fest® in order to qualify for the gift.

Carlsbad Beach Fest® brings together the community for a fun-filled annual celebration of coastal environmental stewardship, education, and public outreach in beautiful Carlsbad, California.


Carlsbad Beach Fest®  is supported by hundreds of volunteers and local community groups!  Interested in giving back to your community, making some great network connections, and looking for an excuse to spend more time at the beach?  Click here and sign up!
