general FAQs

Our seaside venue is located at 1600 Pacific Coast Highway. Just across from the San Diego bay and sharing space with the County of San Diego administration building.

Waterfront Park is an urban oasis with water fountains, green grass and walking paths for you to enjoy.
The San Diego International airport is just a mile away, and we’re walking distance from Union Station for Amtrak trains and trolleys.

We think you’ll find the park to be a very special place– we call it home and hope you’ll treat it as yours!

We highly recommend ride sharing to and from the fest. There will be designated Uber & Lyft drop off.
