Fiesta del Sol, Solana Beach, June 2 and 3.

Fiesta del Sol, an annual Solana Beach community celebration, has become one of the largest festivals in San Diego County. The free event returns the weekend of June 2 and 3.

The 33nd annual fiesta will take place adjacent to Fletcher Cove in Solana Beach within the area bordered by South Sierra Avenue and Acacia Avenue. The two-day event opens each morning at 9 a.m. with the arts & crafts fair and closes each evening at 9 p.m. after the conclusion of the last musical performance.

Among the many attractions will be a wide range of continuous live musical performers booked by the famed Belly Up Tavern, plus an eclectic array of arts and crafts exhibits, merchant booths, children’s activities, a gourmet food truck court and an adults-only beer and wine beverage garden.

This year the Chamber has partnered with a software company, Antengo. Antengo will provide the users of its APP with all the points of interest (stage times, parking, etc.), and most importantly, a listing of participating merchants who are offering “Fiesta Deals” in their stores during the Festival. All merchants displaying the Antengo/Fiesta poster in the window will be participants.

Coaster and Amtrak are both offering two-for-one deals on tickets and the Chamber is giving away “goodie bags” to the first 150 persons who come by train or bike to help make the event the launch of a “car-free vacation” program.

There is plenty of free parking in shuttle lots on Stevens Avenue and lots along south Sierra – which will have PediCabs available.
