Soak up the sun at Del Mar’s annual Summer Solstice

Offering front-row sunset views, crisp ocean breezes and live music, the Del Mar Summer Solstice is the most exhilarating way to usher in the summer season. This annual event, presented by the Del Mar Village Association, is being held on June 19, 2014 at Del Mar’s Powerhouse Park.

Summer Solstice provides guests with the unique opportunity to socialize, eat, drink and listen to live music against a stunning Pacific backdrop. This year’s attendees will experience appetizing selections from more than 20 local Del Mar restaurants, enjoy tastings from some of California’s best wineries and breweries and participate in a lively silent auction. Live music will be performed by local San Diego band Semisi & FulaBula, heralded as one of the city’s most exciting and entertaining bands with South Pacific rhythm and influences.

New this year will be a Del Mar sunset Tiki Torch paddle out and surf show on the waves by the Del Mar lifeguard crew.

The event’s silent auction is one of the Del Mar Village’s largest fundraisers, featuring great items from local businesses and event sponsors. This year, a portion of proceeds from Summer Solstice will benefit the Challenged Athletes Foundation Operation Rebound Del Mar Surf Clinic, providing opportunities to the physically disabled, including bringing beach-friendly wheelchairs to the community of Del Mar. Other proceeds from the event will go to benefit the Del Mar Village Association, a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the vitality of the historic Del Mar Village.

Summer Solstice will be held on June 19, 2013 from 5-8 p.m. at Powerhouse Park. The park is located at 1658 Coast Boulevard, Del Mar, CA 92014. Tickets cost $75 per person; advance purchase recommended. For more information, visit
