Taste of December Nights


Friday, December 3 – Sunday, December 5
11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Inspiration Point Way at Balboa Park


Season's Greetings

For more than 40 years, the San Diego community has welcomed in the holiday season by celebrating the annual December Nights at Balboa Park. Due to the current pandemic conditions, we are saddened that our beloved gift to the region cannot occur as we know it. Instead, the City of San Diego is offering a "Taste of December Nights."

The program will have some of your favorite food vendors and food trucks from past December Nights in a drive-thru setting in the Inspiration Point parking lots near Balboa Park.

The three-day event will be on Friday, Dec. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 5 with 20 food truck/food vendors offering their most popular menu items and festive entertainment.

All safety protocols by the county will be strictly enforced. Customers must remain in their cars. 

We hope you’ll join us; come hungry!
