Dec 6-8 (Fri - Sun) San Diego December Nights Festival



December Nights is celebrating its 41st anniversary this year. Held the first Friday and Saturday each December, the event was originally founded when ten Balboa Park cultural organizations hosted the first celebration. That year, 3,000 San Diegans gathered to be a part of the occasion, and it has been a treasured event ever since.

Today, December Nights is San Diego’s largest free festival with more than 350,000 attendees. Guests enjoy entertaining performances, feast on tasty international culinary treats and experience Balboa Park museums.

December Nights 2018 is produced by the City of San Diego.

No tickets needed!
