About
Performing Arts

Welcome to our complimentary Performing Arts Program. Every season includes a variety of dance, theater, and live music; presenting the best of what San Diego has to offer.

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.

Performing Arts Residency Program

The Performing Arts Residency Program provides a platform for the development and performance of new work that simultaneously enriches the airport environment and cultivates the regional performing arts community. This opportunity is a process-oriented residency program open to contemporary performing arts in all disciplines—dance, music, theater, as well as cross-disciplinary digital media.

Please see the event calendar below for more details
