1. Where do I park while attending a concert?
There is no designated parking for Summer Twilight Concerts. You can park on available street parking and there is a private lot offering paid parking across the street. You may also use the loading zone at the park to drop off your passengers and supplies before parking your car.

2. Is smoking permitted at the Summer Twilight Concerts?
Smoking is not allowed in the park by City of Del Mar regulations which can be found on the City website at www.delmar.ca.us

3. Am I permitted to bring my dog to the concert(s)?
The City of Del Mar rules pertaining to dogs state that dogs are allowed at Powerhouse Park year round as long as they are leashed. Due to the large crowds attending the Summer Twilight Concerts, we hope that you will decide to leave your dogs at home for the evening.

4. What if I want to suggest a band for inclusion in future Summer Twilight Concerts?
As a volunteer organization, we do not have the resources to seek bands. As a matter of fact, the tendency is for us to have more bands available than dates and resources permit us to present. If you know of a band, they may submit their name in accordance with our band submission procedure outlined on the Summer Twilight Concert webpage.

5. May I place rocks from the beach on my blanket to hold it in place?
We ask that you do not take rocks from the beach to weight your blankets. Our
experience is that the rocks end up in the park, which adds an additional chore for our hardworking volunteers to clean up.

6. May I stand or dance during a Summer Twilight Concert?
Please remember to be courteous to other concertgoers and dance the night away up in front. If you'd like to stand please respect other concertgoers’ views of the stage.

7. Do you sell food at the Summer Twilight Concerts?

Whole Foods Del Mar will be selling "make your own" picnics at the first concert on June 16. Stay tuned for further updates. We encourage you to visit one of our sponsoring restaurants either before or after the concerts. Please remember to pack out all that you packed in and recycle.

8. May I bring a Barbecue to a Summer Twilight Concert?
Due to the density of the crowds, the presence of blankets and the slope of most of
Powerhouse Park, the use of barbecues in the park on Summer Twilight Concert days is strongly discouraged.

9. May I reserve a spot?
Concertgoers may put out blankets and chairs starting at 8 AM the morning of the
Summer Twilight Concert. There is no policing of the park so personal items are left at
your own risk. If you bring a chair, low back beach chairs are encouraged as they do not block the view of attendees behind you.

10. May I set up an umbrella and a canopy?
We ask that all umbrellas, tents, flags and canopies be lowered or removed before the Summer Twilight Concert begins.

11. I've lost a personal item. Where is the Lost and Found?
Lost items will be held at the Del Mar Foundation tent at the front of the concert area
until band intermission. After intermission, the items will be handed over to the Del Mar Lifeguards and held at the main Lifeguard Tower at 17th Street on the beach
