Potential visitors and locals alike use this event calendar as a resource to stay aware of the special events and activities that happen in Oceanside, CA. Some travelers are looking for current dates for their favorite annual event, while others are seeking new experiences for their upcoming vacation. We are always interested in learning about new events and celebrations that will enhance the visitor experience.
This service is complimentary to community partners to feature an event on the event calendar.
