The Solana Beach Chamber of Commerce has been hosting this FREE 2-day Arts & Music Festival for 40 years as a kick off to Summer in Solana Beach! The event takes place at Fletcher Cove. The Belly Up is lining up a great list of musicians to perform over the two day event, which includes local community talent. We also have a large, fun, and exciting Children’s Area set up for families to enjoy rides, games, and a climbing wall. Just like last year, we have included the Cedros Design District and they will be celebrating on their street with bands and shopping specials during the weekend.
Fiesta del Sol has something for everyone. Food Trucks along with other great specialty food vendors will be back as well as our Arts & Crafts area, Sponsor area, Solana Beach Fireman’s Pancake Breakfast on Sunday, and much more!
