5 Family-Friendly Events to Mark Your Calendar for This Summer

For many people summer time means family time, and at Del Mar Plaza we’re helping families come together and make memories this season. From live music to a little friendly competition, here are five reasons to get the family together and head to the Plaza.

Seaside Sessions

Beginning July 12, our Ocean View Deck is the scene for Seaside Sessions. On Thursdays and Saturdays through September, visit the Plaza to check out our rotating lineup of local artists. The concert series is a great opportunity to dine al fresco with your family while enjoying live music and a dazzling Del Mar sunset.

Twilight Concert Series

If live music is your jam, you can catch even more of it at the Twilight Concert Series. Shows take place on Tuesdays, July 10, August 7, and August 21 at Powerhouse Park. You can make it a family event by pre-ordering a Gourmet Beach Box, packed with your choice of dishes from Il Fornaio or Pacifica Del Mar, and having a picnic.

Plaza Pong

Break out your sweatbands and ask your family to play the role of your fan club for the inaugural Plaza Pong at Del Mar Plaza. We’ll be playing tournament style out on our Ocean View Deck on Saturday, July 7. Entry is free and the winner will receive up to $1,000 in cash prizes.

Farmer’s Market

The Del Mar Farmer’s Market is the perfect place to spend Saturday afternoon with your family. You can visit the Plaza for brunch, then meander around the market and pick up some fruit, veggies, and homemade goods. The fun doesn’t have to stop there; create a meal together as a family with your fresh finds.

Lil Tritons Club

Every third Wednesday of the month (July 18, August 15, and September 19), the Hullabaloo musical duo will be playing children’s folk music out on our Ocean View Deck. Children in attendance will receive a coloring page and crayons. And after the concert, kids can eat free at Il Fornaio and Pacifica Del Mar; at Del Mar Rendezvous, parents receive a 25% discount immediately following the show as well.
