Preview the 40th Anniversary of Balboa Park December Nights with Santa, Ugly Sweaters, Music & Entertainment Plus Festive Eats & Drinks.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Balboa Park December Nights, in July! The City of San Diego and the Balboa Park Conservancy are inviting San Diegans to get a head start on holiday planning at Holly Jolly July on Friday, July 28. The festive and fun-filled preview of Balboa Park December Nights 2017 will coincide with the Conservancy’s popular Food Truck Friday program.

Santa Claus will be taking a vacation from his workshop to visit Balboa Park for a sunny summer getaway. Here is what you can expect from the event:


  • Live entertainment including Dylan’s Steel Band, the Fleet Science Center, World Beat Center, Civic Youth Ballet, San Diego Chorus of Sweet Adelines International, Fab Trailers Photo Booth and more
  • Gourmet treats from a selection of more than a dozen food trucks – including several that serve festive eats at Balboa Park December Nights including Super Q, Bosnian Grill, and Mangia Mangia


The event is free to attend! Food truck prices will vary.
