Community Engagement

The Port is open to the public for tours Mon–Fri, 8am–5pm. An excellent interactive learning experience tailored for elementary, secondary and post secondary education levels.

The annual Banana Festival was first held in 2012 and attracted over 11,000 participants. This family oriented and highly anticipated event provides a chance for the community to experience The Port with tours, arts and crafts, educational displays, and maritime related experiences, all while enjoying one of The Port’s largest imports — Bananas!

The Port offers an award-winning 12-week Global Trade & Logistics class for Oxnard Union High School District students and partners with local universities to develop maritime education programs.

In conjunction with local businesses and port partners, The Port offers internship programs and hosts an annual Maritime Career Day.
