Past Event

San Diego Asian Film Festival

Founded in 2000, the festival has grown to become the largest exhibition of Asian cinema in the western United States and has showcased everything from future classics like Bong Joon-ho’s Memories of Murder (U.S. premiere) to luminary independent work such as Patrick Wang’s In the Family (North American premiere). This year the 17th edition of SDAFF will showcase over 140 films from 15 countries at 6 venues in San Diego from November 3 to November 12.


Past Event

How to Make a Spaceship

The Arthur C. Clarke Center for Human Imagination invites you to a moderated conversation between Peter Diamandis (founder, XPRIZE Foundation), Julian Guthrie (author of How to Make a Spaceship), and Brian Binnie (the pilot of SpaceShipOne). When Diamandis realized NASA was winding down manned space flight, he set out on one of the great entrepreneurial adventure stories of our time — if the government wouldn’t send him to space, he would create a private space-flight industry himself. The story of the bullet-shaped SpaceShipOne and the other teams in pursuit of outer space is a tale of making the impossible possible. Book-signing follows the discussion.

  • $40 - $100

Past Event

University Heights Taste + Art

Stroll through the neighborhood sampling from University Heights restaurants and enjoy a free self-guided tour of the arts. Pick up your taste ticket at the information booth at Buddha’s Light Bookstore. Restaurants include Plumeria Vegetarian, Twiggs Bakery and Coffeehouse, Pizzeria Bruno Napoletano, Meraki Café, Red House Pizza, Muzita Abyssinian Bistro, Big Front Door, and others. Artists will open their studios to the public and businesses and restaurants will host artists. Return to Buddha’s at 3:30 p.m. for the big raffle. Free shuttle service throughout.


This children’s historical street fair is in the heart of the Gaslamp in front of the William Heath Davis House, spanning Fourth Avenue between Market Street and J Street and Island Avenue between Fourth and Fifth. Take a stroll down the historical streets and fall back into San Diego’s wild past of the 1880s. Kids can pan for gold with prospectors, observe a blacksmith plying his trade, saddle up for a pony ride, or learn to churn butter and dip their own candle. They can even find a sheriff and throw their parents in the town jail. Take a time-period portrait complete with traditional Wild West attire and props and visit one of the cultural booths to learn about different nationalities and how they have contributed to the fabric of San Diego society. Free snacks for the kids include quesadillas from Mr. Joey’s Taco Shop, popcorn, and cotton candy. Kids and adults can enter a spaghetti-, pie-, or ice cream–eating contest. Produced by the Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation.
