Thursday Evening Concert

Kick-Off Concert
Thursday May 10th, 2018
6:00 – 10:30 PM

Always a special treat! We initiated this festival feature in 2014 and it was immediately embraced as another spectacular way to experience the beauty of the music.

The Thursday Evening concert lets us bring you stellar performers in an intimate environment.  Concert seating, two dance floors and the option of table service makes this festival offering a great way to start the festival weekend.

Past headliners have included Tab Benoir, Michael Doucet and BeauSoleil, C.J. Chenier and Marcia Ball. Our 2018 headliner TBA.

In anticipation of San Diego’s cool spring evenings, we are bringing heat to the KSDS Festival Stage on Thursday evening.  We still advise dressing warm with a sweater option.  Of course, if you’re dancing you’ll stay plenty warm.

Tickets Will Be Available in Fall 2017
Table Seating – $95 –
Seating in rows 1 to 18 – $35 –

Seating Chart and Dance floor layout is available through this LINK.
