Kick off the new year in 2019 with 6 fun things to do in Oxnard!
Now that presents have been unwrapped, decorations put away and Douglas Firs curbed, celebrate a new start to a new year this January with these 6 fun Oxnard events:
Celebrate the release of Dutch artist Maarten Platje’s ambitious fifteen painting depiction of important historical events and sea battles at a reception held January 9th from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at the Channel Islands Maritime Museum. “The Early History of the United States Navy” is a new exhibit opening to the public from January 9th through March 25th. Or, attend CIMM’s monthly speaker series on January 16th featuring Dr. Kiki Patsch’s “Beaches on the Edge.”
Sample prime selections and indulge in delectable cuisine from California inspired prix fixe menus. During Oxnard’s Restaurant Week, the city’s top chefs showcase their finest tacos, treats and tastings – all at specially reduced prices.
Attend this concert at Oxnard Performing Arts Center featuring award-winning violinist, Karen Gomyo, as she makes her New West Symphony debut with “Turkish”, one of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s most popular violin concertos. New West Symphony also presents Ludwig van Beethoven’s propulsive and exuberant 7th Symphony and a world premiere of a commissioned work from House of Cards composer Jeff Beal.
All January Long
An uproarious lineup of comics’ tours through Oxnard all month long, including heavyweights of hilarity Arsenio Hall and Rob Schneider. Looking for something to do that’s a little more bizarre? “Tuesday and Cyrus Present: Freak Show” – L.A.’s #1 variety show for 4 years running, hits town January 15th.
Come see one of the West Coast’s most beloved tall ships as she makes her return to Oxnard this winter. This steel-hulled vessel of Historical Seaport recently celebrated her 30th birthday; she is designed reflecting the packet trader ships that sailed coastal New England in the mid 1800s.
January – Mid April
Set sail for an adventure that is truly unique to the coasts of Southern California. Get a chance to view several whale species, as well as dolphins and other marine life, during their annual migration through the Santa Barbara Channel. Be sure to bring your camera for this unbelievable event!
