San Diego Festivals – 2022 & 2023

While you’ll certainly have no problem finding fun things to do in San Diego, you can also check out the list below to see if there’s a festival or event happening during your visit. It’s a perfect way to enjoy some tasty treats and libations, oftentimes in a gorgeous outdoor setting and accompanied by music. What’s not to love about that?

San Diego Bay Wine + Food FestivalAs you might guess given this wonderful city’s inclinations, tacos and beer are often the stars of the show. It’s one of the best places in California to enjoy them, after all.

Another cool thing about San Diego is that they celebrate Restaurant Week two times each year, once in the Spring and another in the Fall, when you’ll also find lighter crowds to go along with the beautiful weather. Talk about a win-win-win situation!

This San Diego area festival list is arranged by month, and you can easily determine what’s happening there during your visit. For each entry on the list, you’ll find the date(s) it’s scheduled to occur, the hosting city, plus a link to a website that provides additional details.

The list shows the 2022 festival schedule. When added, 2023 dates will be ***noted with a triple asterisk*** to avoid any confusion. Many of these events are held annually and often scheduled to occur around the same time every year, so if a 2022 event looks interesting you may want to click through to see if the organizer’s website now provides the new date. Also, if you plan to attend an event, we strongly recommend that you make note of the website and recheck it closer to the actual date.

If your travel dates are already set, here are some handy jump links that you can use to advance to a specific month’s events quickly:
