Oceanside Annual Events

Oceanside, California is a city with roots, and it knows what it is and celebrates that heritage throughout the year. If it isn't tied to the ocean or surfing in some manner, eventually the event planners will find a way to make it part of Oceanside's surf culture. Oceanside events celebrate art, culture, heritage, sports, and often involve food, too. Annual events include the holidays such as 4th of July and Christmas, but also the surfing season.
