Hold Fast

Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego unveiled Hold Fast, a powerful and immersive art exhibition that invites us to explore the impact of climate change on our local kelp forest through the lens of several  local artists and scientists. The aquarium will also offer fish printing and sun printing workshops once a month. Advanced reservations are required. 




Scripps Ranch Theatre presents “Chapatti” Romance is a distant memory for two lonely animal-lovers living in Dublin. When forlorn Dan and his dog Chapatti cross paths with the amiable Betty and her 19 cats, an unexpected spark begins a warm and gentle story about two people re-discovering the importance of human companionship. 



Flower Fields

Flower Fields open

The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch will allow guests to experience the magic of growing color beginning March 1, with a dazzling floral display across the hills of Carlsbad. The 2024 theme of “Spring into Color” serves as not only nature’s announcement of the arrival of spring but is a celebration of the working farm’s cultivation of 55 acres of Giant Tecolote Ranunculus: a flower renowned for its large, double-petaled blooms that sit atop tall, straight stems. The season stretches eight to 10 weeks each year with a full slate of activities including live music performances, workshops and wellness classes that harness the power of Mother Nature.

San Diego Junior Theatre presents “Puffs,” March 1-17 in Balboa Park. For years, a boy wizard went to a Wizard School and conquered evil. This, however, is not his story. This is the story of the Puffs, who just happened to be there, too. Set against a backdrop of spells, potions and magical creatures, “Puffs” is a comedic and inspiring tale for anyone who has never been destined to save the world. March 8 is “Puffs” Character Night: come dressed as your favorite character from the wizarding world! An ASL-interpreted performance is March 16.



‘King James’

The Old Globe presents “King James,” playing March 9-31 at the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, part of the Globe’s Conrad Prebys Theatre Center in Balboa Park, 1363 Old Globe Way. The breathtaking career of NBA icon LeBron James is the backdrop for this energetic and funny play. Shawn is Black and Matt is White, and they couldn’t be more different, except for their love of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
