Great place for a free summer concert in Huntington Beach
The Pier is located at the intersection of Main Street and Pacific Coast Highway. Main Pier Plaza is located at the base of the Municipal Pier on the ocean side of Pacific Coast Highway, between First and Seventh Streets.
The Municipal Pier serves as the focal point of the City’s Downtown area. Constructed of reinforced concrete, the Pier reopened in 1992, and is approximately 1,800 feet long, 30 feet wide, and 38 feet above mean low water level. A variety of visitor serving and recreational amenities, including a restaurant, community access booth, bait and tackle shop, public restrooms, lifeguard tower, and observation and recreational platforms are located on the Pier. Visitors use the Pier to sight see, stroll, fish, and dine.
The public plaza includes a palm court, 230-seat amphitheater, spectator area, access ways to the beach and lawn, restrooms and concessions, bicycle parking facilities, and automobile parking. Pier Plaza was designed as a community focal area where public speaking forums, surfing competitions, foot races, outdoor concerts and similar events are held.
The Plaza is home to an informal weekly “drumming circle” every Sunday that is open for anyone to participate. It is also home to the Art-a-faire and the International Surfing Museum summer concerts.
