Dana Point’s Sea Terrace Park is a large, picturesque venue with a mile of meandering walkways, coastal grasses and native landscaping. Conveniently located on the corner of Pacific Coast Highway and Niguel Road, Sea Terrace Park is adjacent to The Monarch Beach Resort and Public Library, and across the street from The Ritz Carlton and popular Salt Creek Beach Park. Dana Point’s annual Summer Concert Series is held at Sea Terrace Park, as well as other special events. The park has picnicking and bench seating areas, with overlook areas offering views to the Pacific Ocean.
Sea Terrace Park is our new home for the festival and we are excited about the expansive, natural surroundings. The City of Dana Point is named after Richard Henry Dana Jr. (1815-1882), a Harvard-trained lawyer, seaman, and author of the notable sea journal, “Two Years Before the Mast” (1840). In his journal, Dana documents his voyage from Boston to California on the merchant ship, Pilgrim, describing the area once known as Capistrano Bay as “the most romantic spot on the California coast.”
