The ocean connects, sustains, and supports us all. Yet its health is at a tipping point and so is the well-being of all that depends on it. As the past years have shown us, we need to work together to create a new balance with the ocean that no longer depletes its bounty but instead restores its vibrancy and brings it new life.
Together we can shed light on the communities, ideas, and solutions that are working together to protect and revitalize the ocean and everything it sustains.

All around the globe individuals and groups use the day to celebrate, learn about, and do their part to help the ocean. Local, regional, and state organizations will come together to provide engaging activities to help visitors understand the human connection to the ocean, and the 2022 theme is focusing on restoring the vibrancy and balance in the ocean.

This year is the first hybrid celebration of this annual event, being hosted both in-person and broadcast live. So feel free to tune in to see the UN celebration on June 8, 2022, and join us at the Galveston World Ocean Day Festival on June 4, 2022.

Bring your friends and family and join us in celebrating the ocean right on its doorstep.

Beautify the Bucket

Registration is open now until May 8, 2022!

The Beautify the Bucket Competition allows participants to take an active role in beautifying Galveston Beaches and improving stewardship behaviors. Participants in the competition paint a blue trash barrel destined for Galveston Beaches based on a theme:

  • Ocean & Bay Organisms
  • Marine & Aquatic Debris
  • Coastal and Marine Ecosystems
  • Galveston Beach & Bay Recreational Activities
  • Houston Ship Channel

After the competition, the barrels will be added to Galveston’s Beaches where they will be enjoyed by visitors and encourage proper disposal of trash to reduce aquatic trash.
Trash Barrels are limited and are distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis. $20 registration fee. Beautified buckets are due back by June 1st at 5:00 pm.
Viewing and judging are held on June 4th at East Beach during the World Ocean Day Festival, in Galveston, TX. Winners will be announced at 12:00 pm.
Individuals and groups of all ages can register for a barrel to beautify. Register for a bucket here. Help us keep our beaches clean and pristine!
