For the past 29 years the Torrey Pines Kiwanis has hosted the La Jolla Festival of the Arts benefiting programs that make recreation and sports activities accessible for San Diegans with disabilities possible. This year on June 11 and 12, in its 30th year, the event is getting a new name and a new home heading to Waterfront Park in Downtown San Diego. Co-hosted by San Diego Magazine, the newly named San Diego Festival of the Arts promises to be an amazing time for all while supporting a great cause.
The festival will feature over 200 artist booths to peruse, live music and entertainment, a craft beer garden, and local eateries to sample. Proceeds from ticket sales are donated to local organizations, including the Mission Bay Aquatic Center, to support recreation activities for persons with disabilities. With the help of the Torrey Pines Kiwanis over the past 26 years Mission Bay Aquatic Center has provided access to watersports for thousands of adults and children with disabilities.
Every year this event is truly an incredible showcase of talented artists displaying a wide variety of artistic abilities. This year is no exception with an entertainment lineup highlighted by multi-instrumentalist, multi-Grammy Award winner, singer-songwriter Daniel Ho. You can check out the entertainment line up at sdfestivalofthearts.org/festival-info/2016-entertainment/.
The Waterfront Park is sure to be an amazing venue to stroll through the booths, try your favorite local craft beer, or eat some food from some of San Diego’s best restaurants. We will be in attendance at this year’s event and we hope to see you there!
