Music Festival

Kaaboo

Del Mar
This local spin on Coachella made a splash at the Del Mar Fairgrounds last year with acts like No Doubt, art and comedy showcases, air-conditioned areas, and no grungy Porta-Potties. This September, Jack Johnson, The Avett Brothers, and Jason Isbell will take the stage for the fest. Rock on!

Mural Program

Carlsbad Art Wall

Carlsbad
This is one of the latest projects from artist Bryan Snyder, a longtime proponent of public art. Visiting and local artists leave their mark on an exterior wall of Señor Grubby’s restaurant, with a new mural created every two months. Snyder also leads an urban art workshop for teens with the local Boys & Girls Club.
377 Carlsbad Village Drive


Intimate Theater

North Coast Repertory Theatre

Solana Beach
Forget big-box theater. The intimate layout of this performing arts space means there isn’t a bad seat in the house. And that’s great news, considering the nonprofit theater’s consistently stellar lineup—look for Way Downriver, an adaptation of William Faulkner’s Old Man, this month.
987 Lomas Santa Fe Drive


Pop-Up Gallery

Said Space

Encinitas
Surfer vibes meet arthouse culture at this creative space, which hosts gallery showings and opening party exhibitions for collections of paintings, drawings, photography, and other works by local artists. Said is open per a rotating show schedule—check saidspace.com for updates—but you can purchase many pieces on their online store.
