Performing Arts

San Diego International Airport’s Performing Arts Program provides a unique platform to celebrate San Diego’s local culture and present the region’s diverse talent in dance, theater, live music, and more through an ongoing concert series, special event performances, and a bi-annual airport residency. The program enhances the airport environment and enriches the experience of airport visitors by providing unexpected encounters with arts programming.

Whether you're arriving, departing, just passing through or finally coming home, we invite you to pause during your journey and enjoy a brief moment to be inspired and entertained.
