Events in San Diego

In Pacific Beach, California, events happen on a regular basis. Fortunately, we at the Beach Haven Inn are here to help you take full advantage of your stay and keep you informed of all the fun activities and events in Pacific Beach and the surrounding area that you should experience.

Restaurant Week

San Diego’s local cuisine scene has grown to become a dining destination for food lovers the world over. In January, some of the top restaurants prepare menus (with prix-fixe prices set at $20, $30, and $40) to satisfy the most discerning food critics for a mere fraction of the price. Restaurant Week is countywide, making it a very popular Pacific Beach event.

Sun God Festival

In spring, UC San Diego hosts this large music festival. Originally intended as a way for students to enjoy themselves after midterms, Sun God has become one of the biggest musical events in the county. Dozens of underground and independent bands perform on the Sun God stage, attracting fans from all corners of the globe.


Of all the local events in San Diego, Comic-Con has become the most popular and well-known. What originally started as a convention exploring the ins and outs of the comic book world has expanded to include aspects from all popular media outlets, including television, film, and video games.

For one week in July, the San Diego Convention Center, located downtown, is overrun by people from all over the world, wishing to see celebrities, sit in on numerous panels, and walk the showroom floor. Tickets sell out quickly in the beginning of the year, so make sure to follow the website for registration details.

Julian Apple Harvest

Just outside of events in San Diego is the Julian apple harvest. Julian is located just 45 minutes north of San Diego, and the apple harvest is from September to November. Enjoy the fall air, foliage, and all the fresh apples you can get your hands on. The historic town of Julian also offers art shows, entertainment for all ages, and homemade apple cider.

Whether you live in Carlsbad or Pacific Beach, San Diego events are far-reaching and show just how interconnected the community is. Enjoy all the fun events and activities in the area before returning to your warm, comfortable hotel room at the Beach Haven Inn.
