Reef-A-Palooza California

DATE: August 17-18, 2019
VENUE: Anaheim Marriott

700 West Convention Way  Anaheim, CA 92802

Reef-A-Palooza provides the perfect venue for marine aquarium hobbyists to meet fellow enthusiasts, exchange information, and trade, and learn about new products. One of our main goals at Reef-A-Palooza, and within SCMAS, is to educate and enlighten the public with the latest knowledge in marine animal husbandry skills and environmental responsibility. For instance, SCMAS fully encourages the rapid advancement and allure of coral propagation as a viable alternative to wild harvest collection practices. As such, many of our booth exhibitors are local hobbyists who grow their own corals specifically to sell and trade at Reef-A-Palooza and similar events. SCMAS thoroughly encourages this type of “green commerce” for both the betterment and future of our hobby, as well as the resulting benefit to the marine environment.

 

Join us for Reef-A-Palooza California at the Anaheim Marriott on August 17-18, 2019 in Anaheim, California. Immerse yourself with the latest products and hottest corals on the showroom floor and then head out to experience California. Choose between all of California’s top restaurants, nightlife spots, shopping districts, sporting events, museums and performing arts.
