Free and Fabulous Fun in your Neighborhood!
Summer Movies in the Park is a perfect chance to relax and enjoy a safe and special night under the stars. Come early and get a good seat!
The Summer Movies in the Park event series began in 2007 as a ‘take back our parks’ initiative, giving local residents a reason to visit their local county and city parks for a free and safe evening event. This well-attended community activity deterred inappropriate after-hours park use and loitering and gave residents an opportunity to feel safe in their local park, thus encouraging future visits.

Twilight  in the Park Summer Concerts at Balboa Park


For 36 years, Twilight’s live music under the stars has been delighting visitors. The music program ranges from military

bands and Dixieland jazz, to big band swing and Latin salsa. Concerts run all the way through to August 31, on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. with special theme-events celebrating starting at 5:30  p.m. on the stage of the majestic Spreckels Organ Pavilion.

the goal at Twilight is to provide a fabulous, free, family-oriented venue for folks to come and listen to some great music. Bring a picnic, sit back and relax, or kick up your heels to some wonderful tunes.  For complete list of shows (subject to change without notice) visit the website.
