Hawaiian Plumeria Festival

Presented by the Southern California Plumeria Society, our annual Hawaiian Plumeria Festival offers live entertainment, an amazing plumeria flower show, along with one of Southern California's largest and most extensive potted plumeria plant sales. This event is free and open to the public in the Casa del Prado, Balboa Park, San Diego, CA. 

Vendor registration is limited to SCPS members in good standing who meet all our requirements; registration will be held at the July meeting. Please check your journal for more information.

Thousands of people visit us every year; check out past festival coverage from NBC and KUSI here. 

Here is some parking advice for the Festival

Parking in Balboa Park lots is free. If you can't find parking close to the Casa del Prado, it's best to park in the Inspiration Point parking lot (on the east side of Park Blvd., between Presidents Way and the Balboa Park Activity Center) for easy access to the heart of Balboa Park via the free tram. Take the tram to the Plaza de Panama tram stop and walk to the Casa del Prado.

We're happy to hold your plants for you until 3 pm while you enjoy Balboa Park. Plus, our plant runners will be happy to take plants to the loading zone (on the street east of the Casa del Prado) and wait with your plants while you get your car.

Here's a map and full tram info:
