Festival of Arts
THE SAN DIEGO COUNTY CREDIT UNION FESTIVAL OF ARTS is a culmination of creativity of all kinds, through all mediums, in a 8-block celebration that draws over 40,000 attendees. Artists create in real-time at the event, using cars, refrigerators, boom boxes and other every day objects as their canvases using spray paint, markers, acrylic, and enamel paints. Festival goers will get a unique perspective and experience as they witness the creative process in action. Artists show their original art in booths alongside so you can be inspired by their creations and pick up a few pieces for your living space.
The SDCCU Festival of Arts also boasts an impressive, diverse lineup with eclectic acts headlining such as Steve Poltz, Vokab Kompany Mariachi el Bronx, San Diego favorites. Eight stages provides a wide variety of performances, including karaoke and dance stages. And of course, it wouldn’t be a San Diegan celebration without beer, so the Festival offers a Craft Beer Block for unlimited tasters from a selection of over thirty local craft brewers. For those much, much younger than 21, there’s a hands-on Kids Art Block, providing kids the opportunity to participate in interactive activities designed to inspire their imaginations so they can create their own masterpieces.
