The world’s oceans provide us with much more than just food and fun, as the organizers of the World Oceans Day Festival are ready to explain, but fresh seafood and a full day of activities are a huge part of the June 8 event. The festival, held at Stewart Beach in Galveston, celebrates the ocean environment through sports, music and art.

“This is the third year for the Artist Boat to present a World Oceans Day event, and it will be the biggest one yet,” Artist Boat executive director Karla Klay explained. “We have some wonderful food options featuring sustainable seafood this year, thanks to Katie’s Seafood and the Lighthouse Cooking Team.”
