Tonight, the City of Santa Monica will issue an executive order under emergency powers to temporarily close Santa Monica Pier to the public as of Monday, March 16.
The Santa Monica Pier Corporation is in full support of the city’s decision. Though this will heavily impact the Pier businesses and their staff, in this historic moment it’s the right thing to do.
We know that once it’s safe, our iconic Pier will play an important role in bringing back the best in fun! To all of our visitors, from all over the world, and from all walks of life, we look forward to welcoming you back.
This also means we must sadly postpone the start of the 2020 ROGA and all upcoming events. We take the safety and health of our ROGIs, staff and community very seriously and urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials.
