While Attending the Concerts

Welcome to the 33rd season of Del Mar Foundation’s Summer Twilight Concerts.

We hope this information makes your participation at the concert as enjoyable as possible. Parking can be a real challenge due to limited street parking. We encourage concert-goers to allow plenty of time to find a suitable parking spot. Our sponsor, LAZ Parking, maintains the Seagrove Parking lot directly across from the park which is a good pay for parking option. Check out this useful map of parking options in Del Mar provided by LAZ.

Come hungry and enjoy a meal or a drink before the concert at one of our many outstanding sponsoring restaurants. Stay for a late dinner and turn the night into an event of its own. As a special opportunity, Del Mar Rendezvous is offering a loyalty program with a $15 dining credit to you and a $5 donation to the Del Mar Foundation on your behalf.

For questions about reservations, menus or online bookings, please call the restaurant directly.
