Balboa Park Twilight Concerts

Twilight  in the Park Summer Concerts at Balboa Park

CONCERTS START AT 6:30

For 36 years, Twilight’s live music under the stars has been delighting visitors. The music program ranges from military bands and Dixieland jazz, to big band swing and Latin salsa. Concerts run all the way through to August 31, on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. with special theme-events celebrating starting at 5:30  p.m. on the stage of the majestic Spreckels Organ Pavilion.

Our goal at Twilight is to provide a fabulous, free, family-oriented venue for folks to come and listen to some great music. Bring a picnic, sit back and relax, or kick up your heels to some wonderful tunes.
