Catalina Buzz — April

on April 15, 2019

Mother Nature continues to bless the island and the Catalina buzz is all about getting out and witnessing one of the best Catalina wildflower seasons in decades. Blankets of wildflowers will make you say “WOW” over and over again, whether you’ve lived on the island all your life or are just visiting for a day trip.

Speaking of spring, Avalon will celebrate it in grand style this week at Springfest, an island-style street party featuring food, games and live music. Don’t miss it on Crescent Avenue (aka Front Street) in the late afternoon/early evening of April 18.

With Mother Nature getting all creative in the interior, you’ll want to channel your own muse and check out the Spring Art Fair and Craft Festival April 19 to 21. The Catalina Art Association organizes this celebration of all things creative along the Avalon waterfront.

Easter is always a good excuse to over indulge in sweets, especially if you’re still little. Avalon’s annual Easter Egg Hunt happens at the Descanso Beach Club. The fun starts at 10 a.m. sharp on April 20 for the littlest egg hunters.

It’s greener than ever in the hills. Check it out on an Around the Island Cruise.

With the island greener than it’s been in years, there’s no better time to see the confluence of land and sea that is Catalina Island. Thanks to the Catalina Island Museum’s Round the Island Cruise happening April 23 you can do just that.

The Catalina Island Museum itself will be the place to be on May 3, when the organization’s popular First Fridays program explores Prohibition with America Food historian Richard Foss on May 3.

You can always take your own stand against Prohibition on the Catalina Happy Hour Tour, a celebration of all things cocktail – and appetizers. Click here to book your own tour through Avalon’s best watering holes with our fun-loving cocktail concierges.
