There’s always plenty of things to do in the area on a regular basis — but here’s this weekend’s highlighted events in San Diego county!
The nature-focused, environmental film festival will tie-in with, and support, VMF’s theme of A Watershed Year. It will focus on important themes of water and connectivity like those of the 15-mile long Volcan Mountain Range and it’s adjacent watershed and wildlife corridors in the San Diego County and Southern/Baja California regions. Two exceptional, award-winning, feature-length films also provide a local connection.
When: August 21-22, 2015
Where: 1656 Highway 78, Julian, CA 92036
Cost: $10 – $35

The BLVD Market
The BLVD Market began as an idea to expand the food scene in San Diego by adopting the Smorgasburg model from Brooklyn, which unlike farmer’s markets, is a festival for ‘foodies’ who want to eat. The BLVD Market started out small, by incubating the concept on the third Friday of each month and transforming the parking lot of The Boulevard Center into a lively, open-air marketplace.
When: Friday, August 21, 2015 | The third Friday of each month
Where: The Boulevard Center | 2855 El Cajon Blvd., San Diego, CA 92104

Impossible Science Festival
The Impossible Science Festival is a unique, hands-on, interactive event that explores the science behind the seemingly impossible.

This event will examine the question “what is possible?” and use visual and interactive experiences to show how the seemingly impossible can become possible through curiosity and knowledge.
When: August 22-23, 2015 | 11am – 5pm
