Fiesta del Sol in Solana Beach


This June 4-5 was the 32nd Annual Fiesta del Sol in Solana Beach’s Fletcher Cove Beach Park. The event hosted an international food area, rides, vendors, and live music and entertainment both days. Since it was also Solana Beach’s 25th birthday, there was a parade on Saturday morning to commemorate the city’s founding in 1986.

Finding a place to park was a bit of a hassle. However, there are free public parking lots offered by the City of Solana Beach scattered within the proximity of beach access ways. The only catch is that the lots are a little hidden and not necessarily obvious.

The vendors at the Fiesta sold anything you can possibly think of: welcome mats in the shape of surfboards, feathered earrings, jewelry, solar panels, clothing, shoes, it was all there.

But if the Fiesta was too much for you, you could take a little break by walking down to the beach and enjoy the sol for a little.

Sunday’s entertainment culminated in Canada’s own Bedouin Soundclash. Lead singer, Jay Malinowski, thanked San Diego for hosting the band and loved how they were offered a venue at the beach, as opposed to a dark, smelly bar they’re used to. Soundclash played music from their earlier days and a few songs from their latest album "Light the Horizon". Some of the set songs included “When the Night Feels My Song”, "St. Andrews”, “Trinco Dog”, “12:59 Lullaby”, and “A Chance of Rain”. The band played from 7:30PM until 8:45PM, even though it was evident that we fans wanted them to keep going.
