Major Events

During Feb. 26–Mar. 5, 2017, nearly 40 San Diego performing arts organizations will come together to collaborate on the second annual San Diego Theatre Week. This week-long celebration of performing arts will offer a variety of promotions including special performances, ticket discounts, offers for concessions, cast talk-backs and more.

In celebration of Anza-Borrego Foundation’s 50th Anniversary, the foundation and Anza-Borrego Desert State Park are inviting visitors to complete hiking challenges on some of the most famous (and infamous) peaks and trails in the region. “Five Hikes for 50 Years” is a campaign to introduce visitors to the wonders of California’s largest state park. The family-friendly trails range from popular and well-traveled trails to less-visited hikes in more remote areas of the park. The five hikes are: Borrego Palm Canyon Nature Trail, The Slot (off Buttes Pass Road), Pictograph Trail, Calcite Mine and Mountain Palm Springs Loop. Although most of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is free to enjoy, there is a $10 per vehicle day-use fee associated with Borrego Palm Canyon Nature Trail. Guests new to the park are encouraged to participate in the foundation’s “BPC for Free” weekends (selected dates through March 2017) to experience the trail minus the fee.

On Mar. 4-5, 2017, downtown’s scenic Waterfront Park on San Diego Bay will host the fifth CRSSD Fest, an electronic music festival featuring top acts such as Flume, Blood Orange, Justin Martin, Lauren Lance and Peggy Gou on three stages during this ticketed, paid-admission event for attendees 21 or older. Craft beer, mixed drinks, local food and a VIP area will be available.

Held Apr. 7-9, 2017, at Scripps Park overlooking La Jolla Cove, the La Jolla Concours d’Elegance draws vintage car enthusiasts to the luxury seaside village. The sophisticated event includes a cocktail party on Fri. night at The LOT, a VIP party on Sat. and the signature Concours d’Elegance car show from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sun.

On Apr. 29-30, 2017, the Mission Federal ArtWalk will celebrate its 33rd annual event in the streets of Little Italy. Featuring more than 300 artists filling 17 square blocks of the iconic urban neighborhood with art, craftsmanship and beautiful goods, this event attracts artists from across the globe. More than just an art event, the festival is a family-friendly opportunity to participate in interactive art installations and features live music and dance performances.
