Multicultural Events and Meetings

San Diego has a rich multicultural tapestry

The historic murals in Chicano Park and Balboa Park, Malcolm X Library in East San Diego, Martin Luther King Promenade and Chinese Historic District in downtown San Diego are just a few examples of the multicultural tributes evident throughout the county.

Experience San Diego's Diversity

We take great pride in preserving our heritage and culture. San Diego's festivals, neighborhoods, theaters, museums and dining opportunities reflect diverse cultures and lifestyles, including African-American, Asian-American, Latin-American, Native American, gay and lesbian, Jewish and more.

Come join our multicultural celebrations. You'll find that San Diego's warmth comes not only from its sunny weather but also its friendly people. This open-arms policy has helped make our city one of America's most desirable places to live.

With a wealth of meeting facilities and accommodations, culturally and scenically diverse regions, 131 conference and convention hotels, and 56,916 hotel rooms, San Diego provides many ways to make your event memorable.

We extend a warm welcome to you and your delegates to experience the diversity that has made San Diego a multicultural meetings and tourism destination.
