San Diego has become one of the most visited cities in the country for a wide variety of reasons. Of course, it is home to miles and miles of pristine coastline, the weather is amazing, and the culture is one of a kind. But there is another reason to visit the city: the festivals. The vibrant community of San Diego is always finding something to celebrate, and they throw some of the most exciting festivals around throughout the entire year. Here is a list of some of the best festivals in San Diego.
Kaaboo Del Mar
This year from September 15th through the 17th, Kaaboo will be taking over Del Mar for a weekend full of music and fun. The weekend features musical performances of all kinds from classic rock to hip hop and EDM.

You can enjoy endless art displays, unique foods, comedy, and more.
San Diego Barrel Aged Beer Fest
A huge part of the culture in San Diego revolves around great beer with good people. There is no event that encapsulates this better than the Barrel Aged Beer Fest. This is a must-attend event for the beer drinkers out there, because over 40 breweries come together and present the beers that they are most proud of. This means you will be able to enjoy one of the most unique and extensive beer lists that you will find anywhere. Obviously, if you love beer, you will not want to miss this event on Saturday, October 27th. But there is still a lot to love about this festival for those that do not have a great love for beer. Everyone can enjoy music, activities, and of course, amazing food.
San Diego Earthwork’s Earth Fair
This event has been proclaimed to be the largest scale, free admission, environmental event in the entire world!
