Happy Birthday, Marina del Rey!

Our golden year is here and we’re SO excited to share that 2015 marks a special milestone for the community of Marina del Rey…we’re turning 50! Our favorite waterfront hot spot has come a long way since duck marshes and oil derricks and continues to be one of the most desired communities on L.A.’s Westside.

From luxury yachting to sport fishing to paddleboard yoga and sailing lessons, the Marina is filled with activities that keep our waters busy. Hotel renovations, new residential communities and on-trend urban events like “Beach Eats” and the weekly Farmers Market reflect the evolution of the Marina while dining cruises, summer concerts and waterfront brunches continue to celebrate the Marina’s tradition. In our golden year, the Marina is SHINING.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, the Department of Beaches & Harbors is organizing a special birthday bash (April 10 – 12) that includes a FREE concert by Three Dog Night, fireworks show, community birthday cake, and a weekend filled with MarinaFest activities. We have even created an official Marina del Rey 50th website that shares historical information, event listings, photography, media materials, social media links and virtual guestbook – we encourage you to log on and share your favorite MdR memory!

Keep up with our special celebrations and events by visiting the official 50th website – we’d love to have our community join us as we honor this important achievement.

Happy Birthday, Marina del Rey! 50 never looked so good.

Marina Love,
