The Best of Beyond Wonderland

Beyond Wonderland has quickly become one of the most beloved festivals in SoCal over the past seven years. Serving as the quintessential springtime celebration in the US, Beyond Wonderland marks the official kickoff to festival season every March.

This year, Beyond Wonderland returned to its original home at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, CA, for the first time since 2012. To mark the special occasion, we reimagined our much-loved event into a brand-new, fantastical dimension: the Endless Sea, an aquatic-themed creative space offering unforeseen adventures.

And many adventures did we indeed experience: mermaids and mermen, SpongeBob SquarePants and all his Bikini Bottom squad, krakens and sea monsters, and plenty of fish and underwater creatures all across the waters of the Endless Sea.

Here are a few of our favorite things and moments from our maiden voyage to Beyond Wonderland: The Endless Sea.
