Pamela BensoussanIt is my pleasure to welcome you back to HarborFest 2016 where Bayside Park provides a beautiful backdrop for Chula Vista's annual free family festival.

We have a great entertainment line-up on three stages: the Latin Beats Stage, the Community Stage spotlighting local talent, and the HarborFest Stage showcasing headliner acts. Enjoy the art, food, and fun including free kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, and fishing. Take an exciting ride on the Vietnam-era Swift Boat or tour the bay on the amphibious SEAL Bus.

The "Tacos & Spirits Fest" will feature the best tacos around with chefs competing for your vote! Discover regional specialties among the wine, craft spirits and beer tastings. Back by popular demand is the Junior Chef Competition led by SeaWorld Aquatica's Chef Axel Dirolf!

Once again, we thank our many sponsors who donated time, resources, and funding to make this event possible. Chula Vista's beautiful waterfront and the Port of San Diego tidelands offer outdoor recreation including the Bayshore Bikeway and Marinas, rich natural resources and wildlife at the Living Coast Discovery Center, and much more, all waiting to be explored.

Welcome to this wonderful festival and we hope to see you back often throughout the year!
