Taste of December Nights

Dec 3 - Dec 5, 2021

For more than 40 years, the San Diego community has welcomed in the holiday season by celebrating the annual December Nights in Balboa Park. Due to the potential uncertainty of public health conditions at the time of December Nights, and out of an abundance of caution, the City has made the decision to expand upon the 2020 successful drive-through experience, "Taste of December Nights," for this year's event.

Tim Flannery & Friends Return to Maritime Museum

Sep 13 - ongoing

100% of the proceeds from this concert are donated to the Maritime Museum of San Diego.

Tim Flannery and Friends will perform a colorful blend of folk, country, traditional music and storytelling. After a tough year of pandemic stress and fears, and overcoming his personal health challenges, Tim Flannery, the beloved former San Diego Padres, MLB broadcaster network show announcer and analyst turned musician and passionate philanthropist will perform his new appropriately-themed concert “Prevail”.

Throughout his baseball career, Tim Flannery had his guitar in hand. His uncle, Hal Smith – hero of the 1960 World Series with the Pittsburgh Pirates – was one of Flan’s earliest baseball and musical influences. “He was also a songwriter and carried a Gibson J 35 everywhere. I grew up never knowing you couldn’t do both.”

Californian Tall Ship Adventure

Nov 15 - Dec 31, 2021

After more than a year dockside, our captain and crew are ready to welcome you aboard and take you out on San Diego Bay!

The Maritime Museum of San Diego invites you to join us for Tall Ship adventure sailing! This is a four-hour adventure history sail aboard the schooner Californian.
The Californian is a replica of a gold rush era revenue cutter and the Official Tall Ship of the State of California.

Join the crew in sailing a traditionally rigged tall ship! Passengers will be invited to haul a line, man the helm and watch the crew as they scamper up and down the rigging to set and furl the sails. Listen as the Californian’s crew relates the history of sailing and exploration in San Diego, tales of whaling and sea otter trade, local sea battles, the art of ship’s gunnery, life at sea and more.

Santa Train North Pole Limited

Nov 26 - Dec 18, 2021

The fun begins at the lighted Campo Depot. Pick up your tickets from the Ticket Agent in our restored passenger waiting room. We recommend you plan on arriving at the Campo Depot at least 45 minutes before your train departs to allow ample time to park, get your tickets, and pass through our gift shop. Don’t forget to stop by the Hobo Camp next to the Depot to hear tales from railroading’s past.

Once onboard the North Pole Limited, Santa’s elves will sing our favorite Christmas carols, read a popular Christmas story to all of our young ones, and pass out cookies and hot chocolate to all passengers. The North Pole Limited will stop at Santa’s Workshop to pick up Santa and Mrs. Claus who will visit with all passengers on the train on our way back to the Campo Depot.

The train ride lasts for approximately 90 minutes depending on the number of passengers Santa needs to visit with.
