Del Mar Summer Solstice Returns On June 22 With Tastes, Sips, Live Music & Ocean Views

May 7, 2023

The Del Mar Village Association will usher in the return of summer with its 15th annual Del Mar Summer Solstice event on June 22, offering a beachside festival atmosphere with tastes of some of San Diego's finest restaurant and beverage makers. 

Each summer, San Diegans descend on Del Mark's Powerhouse Park to enjoy robust bites from Del Mar Village restaurants, as well as delicious craft cocktails, wine and beer from local and nationally recognized brands, and live music, all set next to the Pacific Ocean. Summer Solstice will feature delectable bites from more than 15 award winning Del Mar Village restaurants, including Adelaide at L’Auberge Del Mar, Monarch Ocean Pub, Tamarindo and Viewpoint Brewing Co. serving food and brews, plus longtime favorites Beeside Balcony, Jake’s Del Mar, Poseidon, Sbicca Del Mar and Zel’s Del Mar, among others. The beverage roster at Summer Solstice will be just as hot, featuring a wide variety of not-to-be-missed sips from Casamigos Tequila, Kove Brewing, Une Femme Wines, Boochcraft, Embolden Beer Co., Topo Chico and more. 
Beyond the stellar food and beverage lineup, attendees will enjoy much more at Summer Solstice, like live music with island vibes from celebrated local performer Ben Benavente, accompanied by the Stateside Bruddahs. There will also be a beauty and wellness area featuring complimentary services from Tulsi Wellness Club, henna tattoos from Raanya Studios and chair massages from Blue Skies Bodywork. A Rusty Del Mar Surf Shop will host a pop up retail shop, and Instagram-worthy lounge areas and a photo wall will round out the spectacular event. 

Tickets to the always-sold-out Del Mar Summer Solstice are currently available online, and promo code SDVILLE offers $5 savings per ticket (through June 4). Each pass comes with entry to the event, unlimited tastings while supplies last and a commemorative Summer Solstice tasting glass. For the first time ever, a limited number of VIP Summer Solstice tickets are available, gaining VIPs early access to the venue at 4pm and exclusive bites and sips from food and beverage partners not available to general admission attendees. Net proceeds from the event benefit the Del Mar Village Association so it can continue its mission of supporting Del Mar's beloved small businesses.

The Del Mar Summer Solstice takes place on Thursday, June 22, from 5-8pm, at 1658 Coast Boulevard in San Diego's North County city of Del Mar. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit
