Get ready for a summer filled with music, fun, and unforgettable experiences in San Diego! Our 2024 San Diego Summer Concerts & Events Guide is here to help you discover the best family-friendly concerts and events, as well as perfect spots for date nights or mom’s night out. From beachside performances to vibrant free summer concerts at some of San Diego’s best parks like Balboa Park, Point Loma Park, Spreckels Park, and more! There’s something for everyone to enjoy in America’s Finest City, from smooth jazz to classic rock and everything in between!

This year’s lineup includes an array of family-friendly and free concerts, such as the popular Clairemont Town Square Summer Concerts and the Del Mar Summer Twilight Concerts. These events offer a fantastic way to spend quality time with your loved ones, enjoying live music in beautiful outdoor settings. For those seeking a night out without the kids, San Diego also boasts plenty of events for adults looking for an evening of amazing live music or just a fun night with friends. We love a night out at the The Rady Shell located in downtown San Diego with many mainstream concerts accompanied by the San Diego Symphony Orchestra, or you will never go wrong with any of the Humphreys concerts!

We broke this guide into three categories: Concerts/Music, Summer Events & Shopping! Click the buttons below to navigate to that section of the page.
