Day at the Park event coming to the Chula Vista Bayfront on Saturday June 29th

Day at the Park at the Chula Vista Bayfront

I don’t know about you, but my summer event calendar is filling up this year. With so many fun events happening, here is another one to add to the list. The Port of San Diego hosts its A Day at the Park: A Port Experiences Series on Saturday, June 29, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This event, which wraps up a fantastic three-part series hosted by the Port of San Diego at some of our underused parks along the beautiful San Diego Bay waterfront, is a testament to our community’s vibrant spirit and engagement.

The series started with a bang on May 18 at Pepper Park in National City, followed by another fun-filled day at Cesar Chavez Park in Barrio Logan on June 1. It’s Chula Vista’s turn to shine, and I can’t wait to see it. Here are all the details we have so far.

What to Expect at the Day at the Park event

‘A Day at the Park’ is not just an event; it’s a day of pure fun and enjoyment! With performances from local artists, delicious food from local vendors, and plenty of kid-friendly activities, it’s the perfect way to spend a Saturday with family and friends, enjoying the best our community has to offer. If you remember the Chula Vista Earth Day event, then it will be like that, but a little bigger.

A Message from the Port of San Diego Commissioner

I have lived in this great community for over 30 years. In that time I have seen so many changes both good and bad. My goal is to promote this city and all of the good that goes on here. There are so many local events, small businesses and community groups making this city even better. You can always find me at the events taking photos. This site is a passion project of mine and I want to use this platform to get the community engaged. Get out and enjoy Chula Vista and make sure to follow me on all the socials for more!
