100 years ago, in honor of the completion of the Panama Canal, the people of City of San Diego came together to host a phenomenal party. The two-year long Panama-California Exposition celebrated innovation, architecture, culture, and the natural beauty of the city of San Diego, the first United States Port of Call in the Pacific.
100 years later, the City of San Diego and Balboa Park are doing it all over again. Join us as we celebrate the art, science, culture, of Balboa Park and the City of San Diego with a year of breathtaking performances, awe-inspiring exhibitions, and historical experiences with a reverence to how San Diego has grown, and how Balboa Park has evolved over the last century.
