Join us for an evening of music, socializing, and animal friends, and a preview of Nighttime Zoo at the San Diego Zoo!

2. 2019 USA Surfing Championships

When: June 12-15, 2019
Surfing America is the IOC-recognized National Governing Body for the sport of surfing in the USA. Surfing America is responsible for holding the USA Championships each year and for selecting the official USA Surf Team to compete internationally.

3. San Diego International Beer Festival

When: June 14-16, 2019
With nearly 200 breweries represented from around the world, beer aficionados will enjoy hard-to-find specialty craft brews alongside favorites from our local brewing scene. Specialty vendors will be selling a variety of accessories and gifts for the beer lover – from craft beer art to brewed beer bones!

4. As You Like It

When: June 16 – July 17, 2019
The 2019 Shakespeare Festival kicks off with the Bard’s fabulously charming romantic comedy, whose heroine is one of his most remarkable creations. The magical forest of Arden is the play’s famous setting, where a gallery of eccentric characters comes together to find love, fortune, redemption…and themselves. Banished from the court by her deceitful and treacherous uncle, Rosalind disguises herself as a boy, not knowing that the man she loves, also on the run, is behind the next tree. Bucolic Balboa Park is the ideal spot for Shakespeare’s enticing tale of mistaken identity, heartfelt romance, and the endearing fumbles and foibles of love.


5. San Diego County Fair

When: Now thru July 4, 2019
Visitors will journey to the Emerald City, meeting magical new friends along the way. Channel your inner courage in our whirlwind of carnival rides. Expand your brain by immersing yourself in creative and educational exhibits. Warm your heart creating new memories with your friends and family. With all of the adventures you’ll encounter, you’ll discover, “There’s no place like the Fair.”
