San Diego is one of the most visited cities in the entire country. The beaches and perfect weather are a big reason for this, but so are the wonderful events that fill the city’s calendar throughout the year. This is particularly true when the summer months come around, as the community really comes to life. You are sure to find an event for everyone during this time. The following are five San Diego summer events that are coming to San Diego this summer that you will not want to miss!
San Diego County Fair
From June through July, you will not want to miss the largest fair in all of California. This is the best way to spend a summer day or evening in San Diego enjoying great rides, awesome food, one of a kind entertainment, and so much more. And you will never have experienced a Ferris wheel ride as sweet as this one with the incredible views of the Pacific Ocean that it provides. You can find all the action at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.
4th of July Big Bay Boom
This is the largest fireworks display in the whole country, and you could not pick a more beautiful venue for it. This July 4th celebration features an incredible array of fireworks launched from barges throughout the northern San Diego Bay. The best part is you can enjoy the show beginning at 9:00 pm from nearly anywhere in the city, but the best spots can be found anywhere along the shores of the San Diego Bay.
San Diego Comic-Con International
Like the other events here, this one is the biggest of its kind in the entire country. People think of comic books when they think of Comic-Con, but it is really a celebration of all things pop culture, and you are not going to want to miss it. Enjoy panel discussions, workshops, and demonstrations from everyone from comic book professionals to filmmakers. This year, it is happening July 18th through the 22nd at the San Diego Convention Center in the downtown area.
Del Mar Races
Del Mar is known for many things, but one of the most prominent is the horse racing that takes place from mid-July to early September. This event is fun for everyone even if you are not looking to bet on the ponies, because it is a true spectacle to be a part of. You can catch races five days a week at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club.
Miramar Air Show
As summer comes to a close there is no stop to the great San Diego summer events. If you are travelling here in September, you could have a chance to see one of the best air shows in the country. There are over 100 civilian and military performers, with the height of action of course coming with the flight of the United States Navy’s Blue Angels. This is happening on September 22nd through the 24th and is sure to provide fun for the whole family.

San Diego County Fair
What better place to visit a county fair than the county that homes America’s Finest City? The San Diego County Fair is winding down, so this weekend is the last time to visit for this year, starting on Thursday, June 29th. If you want rides, exhibitions, and fair food, then this is the place to visit! It’s open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.
National City’s Lion’s Club Carnival
A classic carnival, this annual event features everything to keep the family excited. Games and rides are the main attraction, but don’t forget the carnival food! The Lion’s Club carnival also features a few special events, such as the Miss National City Pageant on Saturday the 1st and the fireworks on July 4th. It’s being held from the first through the fourth in Kimball Park.
Maritime Museum’s Fourth of July
San Diego’s Maritime Museum is pulling out all the stops for Independence Day. Sadly, their cruise featuring a broadside-assist for the fireworks show is sold out, but there are still tickets available for their Fourth of July picnic dinner! This allows guests to sit aboard the 1898 steam ferry for an impressive view of San Diego Bay’s fireworks show while they enjoy a catered picnic dinner. Plus, tickets also get your admission to the museum and its exhibits!
Annual Big Bay Boom
There are over a dozen fireworks shows that happen throughout the county on America’s birthday, but the most famous of them is San Diego’s Big Bay Boom. Four barges placed around San Diego Bay launch a fantastic fireworks show that’s visible from Harbor Island to Coronado Landing to Seaport Village, with accompanying music broadcasted on two radio stations to match. If you can only see one fireworks show this year, make it be this one!
