For 25 years “Street Scene” was San Diego’s oldest and largest annual music festival bringing together a variety of musicians from diverse genres performing for San Diegans to enjoy. It began in the historic Gaslamp Quarter in 1984 and grew, eventually moving to different venues around town before returning to its roots in downtown. Join us on Wednesday, May 8 at 7PM for our next “History Talks!” Lecture with Rob Hagey, founder and producer of San Diego Street Scene. Joining him will be Gaslamp Quarter Association Executive Director Michael Trimble and former head of the Gaslamp Quarter, Jimmy Parker. Together they will share the history of San Diego Street Scene and its role in the transformation of the Gaslamp Quarter and downtown San Diego.
Location: Across the street just steps away from our museum at the HORTON GRAND HOTEL— 311 Island Avenue, San Diego, CA 92110.
