Harborfest 2019 This Saturday

August 17

Harbor Festival 2019

Chula Vista is gearing up to bring you the summer celebration of a lifetime! This year’s annual Chula Vista HarborFest returns on Saturday, August 17, 2019, from 10 AM to 6 PM in Bayside Park (near the Chula Vista Marina).

Some things you’ll see include but are not limited too:

Giant Hamster Balls (Xorbing)

Additional fees apply.
Xorbing is the fastest growing outdoor adventure sport! Everyone who participated had a blast in this area! They ran, jumped, bounced and battled their friends for an incredibly fun and crazy experience!

Parachute Rocket

Additional fees apply.
Everyone who participated was lifted high into the air as the top half of the rocket inflated. They swung around and bounced off the walls on the way up…then after a brief moment of being suspended at the top, riders parachuted down and stopped just before reaching the bouncy floor.

Rock Climbing Wall

Additional fees apply.
The first full size inflatable rock wall. This rock wall can handled up to three riders at a time. Participants climbed with assistance by helpful and friendly staff. Once at the top they rang the bell and then jumped away from the wall for an exciting repel down to the soft bouncy floor below. Fun for ages 5 and up. Parents loved seeing their kids make it all the way up and the kids loved the great sense of accomplishment they got after completing the course!

Bungee Jumping

Additional fees apply.
Everyone who participated experienced the thrill of bungee jumping as they flew up to 30 feet in the air on the West Coast Bungy!

Stand Up Paddleboarding

Hours: 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Chula Vista Water Sports is excited to have this beautiful location right on the water for on-site demos, rentals, tours, a full service school – plus an all-inclusive store to buy your own gear and equipment.


Hours: 12:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Come fish at the pier! Our expert fisherman will demonstrate how to reel a line, cast, & catch a fish. To make it even more interesting, a hoop will be placed in the water and participating kids will be able to cast a rubber ball out to the hoop. Small prizes will be awarded to those who get the ball in the hoop.

Water Rollers

Additional fees apply.
Stay dry if it’s cool outside or play with water inside the roller if it’s a hot day! Running and bouncing around on the water is a blast and great exercise!

Art in the Park

Stop by to enjoy a festive day with the arts, have a bite to eat and mingle with the artists and craftspeople who will be exhibiting and selling their original art and fine crafts. Nestled next to the HarborFest Main Stage in beautiful Bayside Park, a natural setting is created to showcase the rich mixture of works in a variety of mediums. Art in the Park offers attendees a chance to immerse themselves in beautiful artworks with a stunning view of the bay.

Animal Encounters

Get hands-on experience with terrestrial animals such as tortoises and snakes, enjoy a lunchtime story time with animal guests, and create nature-themed arts and crafts with the Living Coast Discovery Center! For more information about the Center, visit www.thelivingcoast.org.

Pet Parade & Oasis

Each companion receives a goodie bag full of pet items and oodles of attention from all. The first 50 to sign up are free! After the parade, the pets can soak up the sun in the Pet Oasis where pups can enjoy cold water and treats from vendors in the shade. Think you and your canine have what it takes to be the best?
