For decades competitors have traveled from all over the world to compete at the historic Muscle Beach Competitions.  Unfortunately, due to Covid19,  the 2020 Season is cancelled.

The events were to include:   Body building, Figure, Bikini, Men & Women’s Physique, Classic Physique, Couples (mixed pairs) Vintage Swimsuit, & a Wheelchair division.  A health fitness expo, free give aways,  Muscle Beach Hall of Fame awards, fitness celebrities, and more, are also among the attractions at these events.

We will miss the energy that this event brings to Venice!

Here is as message from Muscle Beach Venice event producer Joe Wheatley!


Some of you may have already seen the advertisement poster for the “Muscle Beach Championship”, Labor Day Sept. 7th.

I thought maybe…just maybe. Unfortunately I’ve been informed that City/Rec. & Parks not issuing any permits for the remainder of 2020 season. Weider Prime & Earthnutri will return as Presenting & Host sponsor for the “Muscle Beach Int’l Classic”, May 31, 2021.

Go down memory lane with 10 years of competition photos by Venice Paparazzi.
