Solento Surf Festival September 16-23, 2023, Encinitas, CA

The Solento Surf Festival (SSF) represents the vibrant convergence of surfing, film, art, and music. We invite the community to immerse themselves in the festivities taking place from September 16-23 in Encinitas, California.

On September 16, SSF launches with the Seaside Beach Takeover—a family-oriented day brimming with surf contests, live music, food and drinks, and partner activations.

From September 21 to 23, the historic La Paloma Theatre will serve as our hub, showcasing the best new surf films, panel discussions with world-class athletes and creatives, live music, and more.

There will be other Community Activations throughout the week including an Art Show hosted at Four Moons Spa and Pre-Screen Happy Hour at ALOHA Collection. Learn more below.

La Paloma

On September 21 - 23, the historic La Paloma theatre will be the hub of the best surf films, panel conversations, live music, and more. These are ticketed events, and in the past have always sold out quickly!


The Solento Surf Festival will take over Seaside on September 16, 2023, with a free, open-to-the-community event! We are hosting a unique surf contest, with multiple categories for surfers and spectators to enjoy. The fun doesn’t stop when the contest ends - join us at the beach bar and stage for live music and special surprises from our partners. Come hungry - and thirsty- your favorite local vendors will be there serving until sunset.
