Ventura Mermaid Month 2021 at Harbor Village

March is Ventura Mermaid Month. Mermaids fill a special place in the hearts of those in Ventura Harbor Village. All month long, visitors enjoy a variety of fun mermaid-related activities as well as special discounts on merchandise and food. Of course, all businesses and activities follow COVID-19 guidelines to keep the public safe. So, no Mermaid Meet & Greet this year, unfortunately. But there are still plenty of other fun things to see, do, and shop for all month long.

While this year's Ventura Mermaid Month may look a little different than those in the past, organizers still promise lots of fun activities.

What: Ventura Mermaid Month 2021
Where: Ventura Harbor Village
When: All month long in March

Search Ventura County homes for saleVentura Boat Rentals recently released their newest swan boat “flock” out onto harbor waters…just in time for Mermaid Month. Rent yourself one of these fun little boats and paddle your way around the harbor. Keep an eye out for mermaids and mermen along the way. These boats only operate on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Schedule an appointment by calling (805) 642-7753 before all of the spots are taken.

Take a selfie at the special Mermaid Photo Booth set up by local artist Michelle Rogers. This lively backdrop will only be available in March, starting this Friday, the 5th. You can find it by the Barefoot Boutique.

For those of you who like to explore, try your luck at the Mermaid Scavenger Hunt. Starting on March 12th, visit to find your clues and to download your scavenger sheet. Decipher all of the clues by March 28th to complete your sheet. Then, turn your completed sheet into the Mermaid Gallery for a special mermaid prize.


Wild Local Seafood is hosting a contest for Mermaid Month. They challenge you to share your favorite recipes for homemade seafood dishes for a chance to win a $50 gift card at their store. Simply follow @VenturaHarbor and @wildlocalseafoodco on Facebook, Instagram, and/or Twitter. Then, upload your recipe (add a photo for bonus points). Make sure to tag Ventura Harbor and Wild Local Seafood when you do so you don’t miss out on an entry. You also must tag two friends to qualify.

Several businesses offer fun discounts and special mermaid merchandise throughout March, too. When you visit The Greek, receive $5 off a seafood lunch entree when you purchase one at full price. Lost in Socks offers a 15% discount when you buy three pairs of socks any weekend in March. Receive a free swim bag when you purchase at least $50 in merchandise at Ventura Swimwear. Barefoot Boutique, Lemon & Lei, and the Treasure Cove all offer fun mermaid-inspired clothing, jewelry, and soaps.

Enjoy the outdoors this March. Visit the Harbor Village for Ventura Mermaid Month 2021.

Ventura Seaside Half Marathon 2016

Click here to search for Ventura County homes for saleThe Ventura Seaside Half Marathon 2016 is actually split up into three separate courses: a 5K, a 10K and a half marathon (approximately 21K).  This mostly flat course is walker-friendly.  Even the half marathon can be walked if you want to give it a try.  Keep in mind, however, that it will take approximately four hours to walk at a pace of around 15 minutes or more per hour.

The Ventura Seaside Half Marathon 2016 race begins at 8am.  The 10K will kick off at 8:20am.  The 5K starts at 8:35am.  All participants will be sent off in waves to help keep the flow steady and avoid bunch ups.  Be mindful of the people around you.  There will be moms and dads with strollers along the course.  Also, an aid station is set up every mile and a half for your benefit.

At the end of the Ventura Seaside Half Marathon 2016, runners will enjoy a free glass of beer (for the 21+ crowd) or root beer and street tacos to refuel the body.  For just $3 each, anyone cheering on the runners can also have a beer/root beer and street taco plate.  You cannot register on race day.  So, make sure you have your registration in place by Saturday, February 20th.  You can register online here.

Do you jog?  Are you going to enter the half marathon or will you be signing up for the 5K/10K?  Let us know in the comments below.
