Black Beach Weekend events


As Black Beach Weekend draws closer, organizers are hard at work finalizing details for all the events planned throughout the celebration.
The three-day event kicks off Friday night, April 7th, with a party at the Coast Coliseum followed by a car and bike show on Saturday. The Saturday night concert at the coliseum is expected to draw thousands of spring breakers and locals of all ages.
About 30,000 people lined Highway 90 for Black Beach Weekend last year and organizers expect this year to be even bigger. Organizer Maurice Bryant said, “If you don’t plan on attending the event, you want to stay off Highway 90 and take alternate routes, but if you do plan on being at the events, you want to park in designated areas like the coliseum or other lots.”
Sunday’s event is still to be determined. For updates and the latest information visit
