San Diego Events Are Happening ALL the Time!




San Diego, Calif.--

While some newspapers and magazines in San Diego do a pretty good job of listing a variety of events throughout the year, our site ( receives event submissions from some of the bigger events held in the city and in San Diego County. We have discovered that San Diego is probably the most event-driven city on the California coast.


Due to its unique climate (warmest, most pleasant atmosphere year-round), and its location just across the border from Mexico, the food events hold strong showing, as do any events that include music, cocktails, sports, or, well, just about anything at all.


San Diego is a party place, to be sure. But there are family events, pet events, people events, food, concerts, holiday celebrations and ethnic events.  Add to the mix some fantastic venues filled with grace, art, culture and history, and you have the ideal location for celebrating. As we said before, it is not our goal to post all San Diego events (an impossible task). What we seek to do is highlight, showcase and help promote causes that are sent our way that help make life a better place.


Some are annual events and some are unique, one-time events that have been listed on our calendar are shown below. Note that the prices and locations posted were from a specific calendar listing, and don't necessarily offer the updated ranges that exist for this event's upcoming dates. Also, some causes exist, then disappear as a goal is accomplished such as raising awareness about a specific issue in a fundraiser. Some huge events such as the Cinco de Mayo at Gaslamp Quarter is one example of a popular sell-out that simply was held, then not hosted the following year, even though the attendance was monstrous.
