The 39th Annual Fiesta del Sol, presented by the Solana Beach Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with the Belly Up and the City of Solana Beach, will be held on May 19 and 20 at Fletcher Cove and Cedros Design District. The free, two-day summer kick-off event will feature live music from diverse artists such as Hirie, Wayward Sons, Common Sense, Trouble in the Wind, Atomic Groove, and Torrey Mercer, as well as community acts by local schools and children’s performing arts and dance studios, among others. There will also be a shopping area with handmade jewelry, pottery, clothing, and art; food from over 20 vendors; a wine and beer garden; and a kids zone with rides, games, and hands-on activities.

The Fiesta opens each morning at 9 a.m. with the arts and crafts fair and closes each evening at 9 p.m. after the conclusion of the last musical performance. For more information go to
