Ventura Harbor Village Mermaid Month 2019

Mermaid folklore stretches all the way back to ancient Assyrian times (roughly 2500 BC). Christopher Columbus reported seeing them while sailing the Caribbean in the 1400s. One played the title character in Hans Christian Anderson’s 1836 tome “The Little Mermaid” as well as the 1989 movie based on the HCA novel. Celebrate this ancient mystical creature in all its glory during Ventura Harbor Village Mermaid Month 2019.

Ventura Harbor Village Mermaid Month 2019 includes several fun activities, games, specials, and so much more throughout March, including meet and greets with a live mermaid.

Ventura Art & Street Painting Festival 2018

Ventura Harbor Village provides a wonderful backdrop to the two-day event known as Ventura Art & Street Painting Festival 2018. All along the waterfront, 45 artists use the sidewalk as their canvas to create amazing temporary works of art. Fifty local artists set up booths around the village to showcasing their pottery, paintings, photographs, handmade jewelry, and other goods as well. Some of these items will be available to purchase during the festival. Money raised from booth rentals and corporate sponsorships benefit our local FOOD Share food bank.

FOOD Share

Since 2011, the Ventura Art & Street Painting Festival has raised more than $32,000 for FOOD Share. Believe it or not, one in six people living in Ventura County experience food insecurity on a regular basis. This includes working families that don’t make enough to put dinner on the table every night. FOOD Share helps bridge this gap to ensure healthy food goes where it is needed most. They do so through programs such as Senior Kits (for the elderly), FOOD Share & Friends Mobile Pantry (bringing food to areas that don’t have ready access to a brick-and-mortar food bank), and the Kids’ Farmers Market (providing nutrition education and fresh produce to children). If you’d like to donate, please visit FOOD Share’s website here to set up a one-time or monthly recurring donation.
