Waterfront Park

Our seaside venue is located at 1600 Pacific Coast Highway. Just across from the San Diego bay and sharing space with the County of San Diego administration building.

Waterfront Park is an urban oasis with water fountains, green grass and walking paths for you to enjoy.
The San Diego International airport is just a mile away, and we’re walking distance from Union Station for Amtrak trains and trolleys.

We think you’ll find the park to be a very special place– we call it home and hope you’ll treat it as yours!

Early bird gets the worm!
Doors open at noon daily, and the best time to arrive is before 4PM.
Entry may be slowed at peak times during the afternoon (4pm-6pm).

Yep! There are several hotels located near the festival that are easily accessible and within walking distance.
