Balboa Park December Nights

For more than 40 years, the San Diego community has welcomed the holiday season by celebrating the annual December Nights in Balboa Park. Due to the potential uncertainty of public health conditions at the time of December Nights, and out of an abundance of caution, the City has made the decision to expand upon the 2020 successful drive-through experience, "Taste of December Nights," for this year's event. The three-day event will take place on Friday, December 3rd through Sunday, December 5th from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and will feature some of your favorite food vendors, food trucks, and entertainment from past December Nights in a festive drive-through setting at the Inspiration Point parking lot near Balboa Park. All County and State safety protocols will be strictly enforced. Customers must remain in their cars. We hope you'll join us and come hungry! Please check back for more details in the weeks to come. Due to COVID restrictions, the International Christmas Festival at the Intl Cottages will NOT take place as in normal years. Instead, the Cottages will be open as normal to visitors on Saturday and Sunday. The Cottages will also be hosting a drive-through international desserts booth Friday - Sunday, 12/3 - 12/5 from 11 a.m. - 10 p.m. at the Inspiration Point Parking. Here you will find the Map and Menu
