Since 1982 the Del Mar Foundation has been organizing Twilight Summer Concerts in the spectacular setting of Powerhouse Park overlooking the ocean in Del Mar. Each year the fan base seems to grow, with happy throngs of people who picnic, dance and sing along with the classic rock music. This year is no exception with large crowds attending the first concert on June 15 to hear the retro sounds of Mrs. Robinson.
As always, both locals and visitors to our community brought lawn chairs, blankets, picnic dinners, children, grandchildren, dogs and a bottle of wine to enjoy the music with friends and neighbors. A word to the wise: come early to get a spot on the grass and remember to bring your wallet with you so you can buy a specially designed concert season t-shirt and participate in the evening’s raffle of gift certificates donated by local businesses and restaurants.

These concerts would not be possible without the financial support of our local sponsors. The Del Mar Foundation works in partnership with Del Mar businesses to underwrite the concerts and counts on their participation each year to make them a reality.

This year long-time sponsors Supervisor Pam Slater-Price and the County of San Diego, as well as the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, are back to provide support for the concert series. Two popular local restaurants, Poseidon On the Beach and En Fuego Cantina & Grill, and the recently renovated resort hotel and spa, L’ Auberge Del Mar, join them in underwriting the four concerts.
