Solana Beach, CA–Come join us for the 30th annual Fiesta Del Sol event in Solana Beach on June 6th and 7th. Over 50,000 people are expected to attend–and there are a lot of reasons why. Even I will leave behind–at least for a few hours–my obligations as a San Diego real estate agent.
The arts and craft booths are totally sold out, and as usual, you can expect to find some crafty buys ranging from unique jewelry to garden whirligigs. Additionally there will be some great music and bands such as Common Sense and West Indian Girl who are playing on Saturday, with Donovan Frankenreiter headlines on Sunday.
Parking is always a tough proposition at the Fiesta Del Sol, so one of the best ways to get to this event would be to take the Coaster as it lets you off at the Solana Beach train station directly across the street from the crowded venue. There will also be a free double-decker bus service that will pick you up at the Solana Beach Corporate Center parking lot, located at 380 Stevens Ave, just south of Lomas Santa Fe Drive You will also find free parking at the train station–if you arrive early.
Fiesta Del Sol will start at 9 am, with live music beginning two hours later at 11. Event organizers suggest leaving dogs at home. There will be a beer garden for those who are 21 and up- with plenty to do elsewhere for families, kids and teens.
