Downtown San Diego Memorial Day

Memorial Day Weekend is right around the corner, and whether you want to stay near your Downtown San Diego loft or venture to other neighborhoods, San Diego has an event for you. Here are three of the top places to celebrate Memorial Day Weekend.

1. Andaz San Diego

RoofTop600 will officially kickoff the summer pool party season with a trio of see-and-be-seen pool parties in the Gaslamp Quarter over Memorial Day Weekend. On Sunday, May 24th, get some sun at the BYOI (bring your own inflatable) party and listen to beats from Kimbo, Tuff Tuff, and DJ Bit Funk. Cabanas and bottle service are available. Tickets start at $15.

2. Jazz Fest

If rooftop pool parties aren’t your thing, head up to Carlsbad for Jazz Fest. The three-day event features smooth and soulful sounds from the likes of Maxwell, Toni Braxton, Erykah Badu, Eric Benet, KEM, Jazz in Pink, and R. Kelly to name a few. Concertgoers can also look forward to improved bar areas, more restrooms, and delicious food like pulled pork nachos, jambalaya, chicken and waffles, fried softshell crab, oxtail, and dozens of other mouthwatering options. Single day tickets start at $65, and 3-day tickets start at $195.

3. Legacy Week at the USS Midway Museum

Every year the USS Midway serves at the cornerstone of Memorial Day celebrations in San Diego. Amidst the festivals, parties, and endless beach days, Legacy Week reminds us what Memorial Day is all about. Over the 3-day weekend, visitors can watch a veterans wreath ceremony, which includes free museum admission after the event, attend a benefit concert featuring Wynonna Judd, meet aviators, listen to a 40-piece Navy band, donate at a blood drive, and bring the little ones to the kids adventure zone.

If you’d rather use the extra time to check out condos in Little Italy San Diego, the East Village, or Cortez Hill, give us a call at (619) 649-0368. Downtown San Diego real estate is our specialty, and one of our professional and experienced agents can help you find the home of your dreams. ')}
