General Information: The La Jolla Festival of the Arts is one of the most prestigious juried art shows in the country and will once again showcase a weekend featuring nearly 200 of the west’s finest artists, entertainment, and an enticing selection of delicious cuisines, wines and craft beers.  Guests will enjoy the Festival’s intimate and relaxed environment on the turf of UCSD Warren Field on June 22-23.  The Festival has established a legacy of supporting local charities and organizations, with proceeds benefiting San Diegans with disabilities.

Now well into its third decade, the La Jolla Festival of the Arts started as a small fundraiser for the Torrey Pines Kiwanis Club.  The Festival has now blossomed into a much-anticipated regional event that raises tens of thousands of dollars for disabled persons throughout San Diego.

Story and Photo Opportunities: There are many advance story opportunities focusing on arts, entertainment, and sports and recreation opportunities for persons with disabilities. The photo opportunities are colorful and unique.  The La Jolla Festival of the Arts provides a great source of storylines regarding the creative process and artistic development.  Our artists represent every medium imaginable and live in communities throughout the western US. The visuals here are outstanding in color, presentation, and design.  The La Jolla Festival of the Arts is a fundraiser of the Torrey Pines Kiwanis Club, which raises tens of thousands of dollars annually to provide sports and recreational activities to disabled persons.  Many of our beneficiaries have lost all or much of their traditional funding and now rely on organizations such as ours to continue their community service.  If your beat includes disabled rights, adaptive sports, wounded warriors, veterans affairs, general sports, or high school sports funding issues, let us help you tell a great story.
