The California Mermaid Convention


From the Promenade of Mermaids to lectures to film screenings to opportunities to swim with mermaids, this event has everything to satisfy a siren’s dreams! Started nine years ago as the Promenade of Mermaids in Old Town Sacramento, this is the longest running mermaid event in the U.S. 

family friendly mermaid event

This family-friendly event is centered around creativity, community, and fun. Kids can splash in the pool with mermaids, there’s a river beach cleanup on Sunday, and don’t miss the 21+ Launch Party at the Dive Bar downtown on Friday night, where you can check out the mermaid shows in their 40-foot saltwater aquarium. To promote environmental awareness, they’re working to create a low (or even zero) waste convention. Dive in, mermaids and mermen!
