Mid-end of July also marks the start of Del Mar Thoroughbred Club’s summer horse racing season. People come from all over to place bets on their favorite horses and jockeys at the Del Mar racetrack. During racing season, Del Mar hotel rates skyrocket.

There are all kinds of fun events during the season, both on and off the track. From a Hat Contest to various party events, and even a Beer Festival. Check their calendar for details.


You can participate or simply watch the action at this dynamic coastal event. Billed as a Triathlon, Duathlon & Aquabike, the event starts with a swim in the ocean, then a bike ride along the famed Pacific Coast Highway, and ends with a run along the shore. It’s undoubtedly scenic but don’t be fooled – its also challenging.

Race Day is July 28 this year, but the previous day features a fun Expo event with pep talks for all age ranges. Check the event website for more details.


This event is sure to be a bit hit with kids. Cardiff Dog Days of Summer is a free event held at Encinitas Community Park. Everyone is welcome and dog lovers or owners can peruse the many dog-related vendors, rescue groups, and pet adoption agencies.

Live music, all kinds of dog contests, and a canine obstacle course add to the fun, while food trucks will keep you full and a libation lounge (for a charge) is on hand for the grown ups. The San Diego Fire Department will also be in attendance to feature educational and fun demonstrations throughout the day.

Cardiff Dog Days of Summer is held on Sunday, July 21 and the fun kicks off at 10am.

Del Mar Summer Twilight Concerts

Gather by the Powerhouse for the Del Mar Summer Twilight Concerts to socialize, picnic, and enjoy music as the sun sets over the ocean.

Since the first Twilight Concert was held in the summer of 1983, the summer twilight concerts have been a great Del Mar tradition. 

All concerts are held at Powerhouse Park
