Mother nature has gifted us a sunny, warm weekend. Let’s not waste it by sitting at home.

Here are the top events around town.

WOW Festival

This is theater like you’ve never experienced it before (unless you were at the 2013 festival). WOW, an acronym for without walls, is just that, theater performed outside of a theater.

WOW Festival features more than 20 performances from leading artists in San Diego and around the country at the La Jolla Playhouse theatre district, UC San Diego and the nearby neighborhood.

The event spans the weekend. Tickets and performance times varies. There are also some free performances.

La Jolla Art &  Wine Festival

La Jolla isn’t just all about beautiful beaches, it’s also for art, wine and culture. This weekend the La Jolla Art & Wine Festival takes over La Jolla’s iconic coastal bluffs for a momentous two-day celebration.

Stretching over a 1/2 mile, through the heart of La Jolla Village, this two-day, juried art show ushers in the works of 150 artists from around the globe, a dedicated late-night beer fest, and more than 40 world-class wineries from California, Baja and beyond.
