Hillcrest CityFest Art & Music Festival Returns For Another Big Celebration!

Hillcrest CityFest summer art and music festival is set to take over 5th Avenue on August 12th from noon until 11pm, and this is going to be a BIG party – expected to draw 150,000 people from San Diego and elsewhere!

Located in the colorful and vibrant community of Hillcrest – their quaint shops and restaurants along 5th Ave, Robinson, and University will come alive with community spirit, giving you a place to dive in and explore!

A grand stage with live music will keep you entertained followed by headliner DJ’s and talent. An impressive cocktail bar and Miller-Coors Beer Garden featuring Hop Valley Brewing Co.’s Reveal Pale Ale, will keep you hydrated while over 250 vendors offer incredible shopping opportunities.

Hillcrest has been the home of the LGBT community for over 30 years. Known to locals as “Pride-Light,” Hillcrest CityFest is a celebration of our landmark Hillcrest sign, our residents and our businesses who have all been champions for equality, diversity, and inclusion in San Diego and beyond.

See you there!
