Del Mar Entertainment
There’s always plenty to do in Del Mar, such as movies, live music, street fairs, and weekend events for families and shoppers. One of the biggest draws to Del Mar is the Del Mar Fairgrounds which offers, besides summertime horse racing, great concerts from national acts such as Carrie Underwood. There’s always something happening at the Fairgrounds, either a home remodeling show, expo, or other activity for just about everyone. Another big attraction is the annual San Diego County Fair, also at the fairgrounds, which attracts hundreds of thousands of people each year during the summer. And with the addition of the Coaster rail service for Padres games, it’s easier than ever to get downtown for a major league baseball game.
“Where the turf meets the surf” is where you will find Del Mar's famed racetracks and a packed crowd of energetic fans ready for some action! The excitement and energy in the crowd thrives on not only the races, but the vibrant social scene up here. Opening day at the racetracks is always the biggest hype of the season, which runs from July-September and day to see and be seen by always present famous and elite faces in the crowd. The racetracks also provide an ideal venue for concerts, which are held during the season's “Four o' clock Fridays,” featuring a variety of local and well known artists and bands (past bands have included: Jimmy Eat World, The Flaming Lips, Billy Idol, Matt Costa, and Louis the XIV).
