What's happening in downtown San Diego this Month? Everything! From concerts, open-air activities, and family-friendly fun. There is plenty to choose and something for everyone.

Musical Performances

March kicks off on a weekend this year, so there's plenty to do in the first couple days. Many of the downtown bars host events like live music, karaoke, stand-up comedy, and other entertainment. Two of our favorites are Casbah and the House of Blues. If you’re in the mood for a show, be sure to grab tickets to Disney's Aladdin on Broadway at The San Diego Civic Theater, or Diana at the La Jolla Playhouse.

Here is a list of March concerts and Festivals:
  • March 1: Expand your musical palette with a classical-jazz fusion flute event at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library at 1008 Wall Street in La Jolla.
  • March 2 to 3: Head over to the >CRSSD festival at Waterfront Park — if you can score some late tickets.
  • March 5: See Muse live at the Pechanga Arena.
  • March 8: Catch the opening of Three Decembers at the San Diego Opera.
  • March 11: Jazz up your Monday with the annual cross-genre San Diego Music Awards event at the House of Blues downtown.
  • March 24: Check out an acclaimed collegiate choir performance at the downtown First Presbyterian Church in the afternoon.

There are plenty of safe, fun events in and around San Diego that are great for kids. Movies, concerts, sports events, learning museums and farmer's markets — children (and the young at heart) have a great variety of options. Here are a few highlights:

  • March 1 to 4: Head to the big top in Westfield Plaza, because Circus Vargas is back for its 50th year.
  • All month: Go on an exploratory adventure all week with the San Diego Puzzling Drive that goes from Balboa Park to the Presidio.
  • Any time but Tuesday: Visit the New Children's Museum for variety of transformative learning experiences that pair creativity with critical thinking.
