Following is the tentative schedule for the Beachcombing Holiday Festival. All times in Pacific Standard Time (PST). See below for some times around the world. Please note that the date is November 28, 2021, in Japan and Australia.

The live festival program will run from 10:00 am to 3:30 pm Pacific Time on November 27, 2021. Videos and presentations are free and are made possible by our Marketplace Exhibitors, members of Beachcombing Club, and by our Presenters who are generously sharing their time to take us on their beachcombing adventures, share their expertise, and show some of their collections on festival day.

YouTube Premieres and Zoom Meetups

The Beachcombing Festival includes a series of online video premieres on YouTube and live talks and interactive Q&A sessions on Zoom. Each session has two main presentations, plus time for hanging out on Zoom afterwards.

If there is a video link, click to set a reminder and/or watch on show day.

The Zoom room will be open during video premieres, but we hope you will watch the premiere on YouTube and then be ready to join us on Zoom to interact with the presenters and other attendees immediately following the end of the video. We have left some time at the end of each session in case you want to hang out for a while until the next session begins.

All times are Pacific Standard Time.
