Del Mar Foundation: Good Day Sunshine!

Summer Twilight Concerts are just around the corner, and it’s a great way to hang with family and neighbors – enjoying the music, dancing, picnicking, and taking in a signature sunset over the ocean. This year’s series includes a fourth concert, featuring The Walrus, a New Orleans Beatles Tribute band.


This is DMF’s longest-running program, debuting on July 11, 1983 with a performance by folk legend Sam Hinton, with six concerts that summer — in Seagrove Park, because Powerhouse Park did not yet exist.

This year’s schedule:

June 20

Electric Waste Band (A Tribute to the Grateful Dead)

Opening act: Sweet Juanita


July 18

Mighty Untouchables

Opening act: 5 O’Clock Shadow


August 1

Sara Petite

Opening Act: Jack Tempchin


August 22

The Walrus (A Tribute to the Beatles)

Opening Act: Tim Wray of Fat Paw
