Don’t miss the Scoop San Diego Ice Cream Festival!

We love this event because it is held in central San Diego, in the North Park neighborhood. North Park is home to tons of great restaurants and bars, and also cool and interesting shops. The Scoop Ice Cream Festival is on Sunday, June 25th, and it starts at 12:00 PM. Once you’ve filled up on ice cream and gelato, consider talking a walk down University Avenue and exploring all the great establishments that make the neighborhood so iconic.

Getting hungry just thinking about it? Yeah, us too. Check out this video for an inside look at the Ice Cream Festival!

For a free festival, check out Beach Fest!

This free event features not only live music, but also surf competitions and many local vendors! Put on by the Grammy-winning band Switchfoot, Beach Fest supports initiatives that give back to the community while also providing entertainment and fun for a day!
