Tidelands Activation Program Events

As part of efforts to support a vibrant and active waterfront, the Port of San Diego offers sponsorship to community organized events through the Tidelands Activation Program or TAP. This annual grant program supports events, large and small, that engage the community and inspire visitors to enjoy San Diego Bay. Events were selected through a rigorous public evaluation process led by the Tidelands Activation Program Advisory Committee, which includes members of the community. We encourage our community to participate in these great opportunities to enjoy our waterfront!
