Thanks to all who made 2013 Balboa Park December Nights so memorable!

 The co-producers and co-hosts of this classic San Diego celebration would like to thank our generous sponsors. We could not have welcomed 275,000 visitors to the Park over the two-day event without the support of these wonderful organizations. We would also like to thank the entertainment groups, the Park museums and cultural organizations and the many Balboa Park and community volunteers who made this festival so special.

We’re hoping to spend the first Friday and Saturday of December (December 5 and 6, 2014) with you next year!


Take a look at Balboa Park December Nights 2013!
