Del Mar Race Track

Summer may be coming to an end, but Del Mar Race Track isn’t ready to ride off into the sunset.  Through September 7th, San Diego area residents and visitors have several chances to gallop onto some fun “Where the turf meets the surf.”

  • Family Fun Weekend – At the end of each week the whole family can come out and participate in a range of free activities.
  • Summer Concert Series – Saturday nights Del Mar turns its arena into a musical show down featuring big name bands like Jimmy Eat World, Weezer, G Love & Special Sauce, Ziggy Marley and more.
  • Daybreak at Del Mar – Early risers can take advantage of this special Del Mar event featuring morning workouts, daily racing tips, and a discounted breakfast at the Clubhouse. Talk about a trifecta!
