SAN DIEGO -- A new San Diego Pride tradition was born last year, and by popular demand, the Pride of Hillcrest Block Party is back!
Pride revelers will gather around the Hillcrest Pride Flag on Friday, July 12, at 7 pm for an evening of music, drinks, dancing and fun in celebration of the weekend ahead.
This year's event, which is produced by the Hillcrest Business Association and San Diego Pride, will include a large dance area, music by Hillcrest's best DJ's including Nikno, a giant Ferris wheel, a VIP area and more.
Event organizers say that they reviewed feedback from participants who attended last year's first annual event and addressed the concerns raised. This includes access to the Spirit of Stonewall Rally, which precedes the event, bathroom lines and bar access (more restrooms, more bars & more bartenders!). Guests should expect an incredible experience at one of the best Pride parties in town, organizers say.
Just prior to the event, San Diego Pride will host its annual Spirit of Stonewall Rally from 6-7 pm under the Hillcrest Pride Flag. Details about the Rally are here. The Stonewall Rally is free and open to the public.,
Following the Stonewall Rally, the street will become the spot for the Block Party. Tickets to the Block Party are $20 in advance for regular admission and $50 in advance for VIP admission. Those who wish to attend are encouraged to purchase their tickets early since prices will be raised by $10 and $25 respectively on the day of the event.
