A vibrant home of the LGBT community

Renowned for its vibrant nightlife scene, international dining, and eclectic shopping, Hillcrest has been the home of the LGBT community for over 40 years. Known to locals as “Pride-Light,” Hillcrest CityFest is a celebration of our landmark Hillcrest sign, our residents and our businesses– who have been champions for equality, diversity, and inclusion in San Diego and beyond.
