The three Rotary clubs of Ventura presented the End of Summer Beachside Bash on September 23, at San Buenaventura State Beach Park.

A national ribeye steak cookoff, car show, live bands and food trucks were at San Buenaventura State Beach Park. The event marks the end of summer and was sponsored by the Rotary Clubs of Ventura, Ventura East, and Ventura South.

Fun for all ages, with fabulous food and drinks, a car show and a steak cook off, plus celebrity chef demonstrations and live music. All proceeds from this event will go to local charities.

Last year collectively the Rotary Clubs gave $770,056 to service-oriented organizations.

The cookoff was sponsored by the Steak Cookoff Association, in Ventura for the first time. Ventura bands Nautical Thrust and The Bomb will entertain with yacht rock, Latin soul, and funk. Grill demonstrations by award-winning BBQ chefs Kyle Matuszewski and Phil “the Grill’ Johnson. Visitors enjoyed a variety of offerings from food trucks, beer and wine, and shopped at local vendors.

“On behalf of Ventura’s three Rotary clubs, I am thrilled to invite our community to join us for a day of joy, connection, and giving back at Ventura’s First Annual End of Summer Beachside Bash” said Neal Lassila, President of the Rotary Club of Ventura.
