Hillcrest CityFest 2022 — San Diego’s largest art and music festival, stretching nearly half a mile in size on over 9 city blocks — is set to take over Hillcrest on August 14th, when the quaint shops and restaurants along 5th, Robinson, and University will come alive with community spirit!

The festival celebrates the Hillcrest neighborhood’s colorful and vibrant community, and features live bands, electric dance music DJs, arts, crafts, and food that attracts over 150,000+ visitors from San Diego and Southern California.

The 36th Annual Hillcrest CityFest Art And Music Festival

What’s new for Hillcrest CityFest 2022

Hillcrest CityFest 2022 will be a feast of interactive arts. Hillcrest has long been a home for the arts community and this year, CityFest will celebrate that!

With six distinct interactive art installations including pieces such as Shadows on the Wall, Human Animation, and Cartoon City, CityFest 2022 will be a celebration of the creativity inherent in the city.

New for 2022 CityFest will also feature an Art and Craft “ramble”.

In previous years, crafters and artists were all stacked together. This year, artists and performers, vendors, and attractions will be dispersed throughout the event all mixed together, inviting you to explore neighborhood businesses alongside exciting artists, creative food vendors, and unique crafters!
