World Ocean Festival Has a New Home

We're so thrilled to announce that there has been so much excitement building around the World Ocean Festival we had to move to a new home in New York City. The World Ocean Festival will officially take place on Governors Island on June 4, 2017. Governors Island is the provides a getaway from the hustle of Manhattan and the perfect backdrop for World Ocean Festival, which will be situated at Picnic Point at the South point of the island.
