Surf City Nights Downtown Street Fair

HUNTINGTON BEACH-On Tuesday, March 6, from 5 – 9 PM, downtown Main Street will come alive with the sounds of live music, street performers, a farmer’s market, activities for the kids, specials from our downtown restaurants and sidewalk sales from our downtown retailers.

It will be the first of twelve Surf City™ Nights. The community-spirited event will continue each Tuesday until May22.

Surf City™ Nights is presented by the Huntington Beach Downtown Business Improvement District (HBBID), the City of Huntington Beach and the Huntington Beach Conference and Visitors Bureau. The event takes place in the second and third blocks of Main Street and is designed to attract couples and families from throughout the region to downtown Huntington Beach.

"Surf City Nights will soon become the place to be on Tuesday nights in Orange County," said Huntington Beach Mayor Gil Coerper. "It's good for the city to have more family events downtown. The downtown merchants and city staff have been working hard to make the downtown street fair a success. We hope it will grow and become a Tuesday night tradition."

Surf City Nights is a result of downtown merchants’ and the City Council’s agreement on a proposal for a temporary closure of Main Street. As part of the plan, the Council also agreed to close the streets for five full weekends for major events through 2008. Watch for upcoming dates and announcements on the HBBID website, or the city website,
