USA Diving Brings High Diving to Long Beach

Some of the world’s best high divers will make a big splash into Long Beach’s Rainbow Harbor, Labor Day Weekend 2024, as US Diving presents a competition like no other: an international cast of competitors diving off a near-90 foot platform erected next to picturesque Lions Lighthouse. All that and live music performances, plenty of great food and one-of-a-kind fun. Jump in!

How high are these high divers diving?

Consider that Olympic platform divers are launching from a 10-meter structure, roughly 30-feet in the air. These high divers will be taking off from a platform nearly three-times as high, a 27-meter tower–88 feet–constructed next to Lions Lighthouse. The 40 athletes from 20 countries will be diving into Rainbow Harbor which is about 19-feet deep at that point.

How Long is the Event?

This is a four-day event, with a Thursday, August 29 training day open to the public, free of charge. For the three days following, Friday, Saturday and Sunday–Aug. 30-Sept. 1–paid admission will be required. Competitions will be held on Saturday, August 31 and Sunday, September 1.

But wait—there's more!

Adding to the fun and excitement will be three nights of themed live music performed by nationally and locally known bands. There will also be a wide range of food trucks and beer tents. This family-friendly event will also feature exclusive meet and greet experiences with the athletes as well as VIP events and after parties.
