For 36 years, Twilights live music under the stars has been delighting visitors to Balboa Park. The music program ranges from military bands and Dixieland jazz, to big band swing and Latin salsa. Concerts run all the way through to August, on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 7:30 PM, plus special theme-events starting at 5:30 PM on the stage of the majestic Spreckels Organ Pavilion.
Our goal at Twilight is to provide a fabulous, free, family-oriented venue for folks to come and listen to some great music. Bring a picnic, sit back and relax, or kick up your heels to some wonderful tunes.
