The Balboa Island Museum 2nd Annual Fun Zone Festival

October 21, 2022

Named by the Los Angeles Times as “Best of the Southland” 2022 museums, The Balboa Island Museum Newport Beach “Preserving the history of Newport Harbor”, invites the community to its 2nd annual Fun Zone Festival on Friday, November 4.  The Friday evening fall extravaganza at the Newport Peninsula Fun Zone will be transformed by the Balboa Island Museum team led by Shirley Pepys, chairman and daughter Tiffany Pepys Hoey, executive director, working with Linda Young of Elite O.C. Productions creating an al fresco pavilion for museum guests.

A prominent area of the Fun Zone will be sectioned off for the carnival-themed event. A spectacular black, white, red, and gold color scheme will set the mood for a stunning stilt walker, magician, and carnival games and prizes. 

The adults-only party will serve fabulous custom specialty cocktails and food stations with over-the-top fun zone favorites accented with a serious blend of amazing choices. 

All this with carnival games prizes galore and dancing under the lights of the shimmering Ferris wheel to the popular local band Reflexx. The Fun Zone Festival is the most important fundraiser for Balboa Island Museum Newport Beach which relies 100% on donations. Every dollar supports the year-long programs and exhibitions that attract locals and visitors from all over the nation and beyond.

Major support for the Fun Zone Festival comes from Julia and George Argyros, prominent advocates of the museum and its programs and its important place in the community. Additional underwriting is needed.
