Ocean Fest is a free beachfront live music/arts/surfing/eco festival that is entirely volunteer-operated and 100-percent nonprofit with all proceeds going to a variety of ocean-related charities and environmental causes. The event was founded in 2019 by three surfing buddies who can usually be found riding the waves of Surf City, North Carolina. The motivation behind the event is simply to share our love for the ocean, celebrate the pure joy of surfing, and, most importantly, to give something meaningful back to Mother Ocean.
Ocean Fest (and its parent organization Topsail Island Longboard Association) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Tax ID: 82-2186356
