SDCCU Festival of Arts in North Park May 12


North Park Main Street announces this year’s San Diego County Credit Union (SDCCU) Festival of Arts in North Park, a free festival that celebrates the artistic craftsmanship of the community, from unconventional street art to live musical talent. The festival will be held on May 12 from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., offering a whole day of entertaining experiences that are free and highlight the local talents of North Park.  

This celebration of the historic and eclectic North Park neighborhood attracts more than 40,000 attendees from around San Diego and beyond. There is something for all ages at this nine square block festival, including interactive exhibits, local makers, fine art and an array of live music along North Park’s busy University Avenue.  






This year, the artistry goes beyond traditional mediums. Meticulously designed dishes, cocktails and craft brew recipes will also be highlighted in the festival’s new Craft Beer Block.  For the first year ever, entry is free for this ages 21 and up experience.
