Summer Events

As the County reopens and more events are taking place, Supervisor Joel Anderson's office has compiled a short list of free and family-friendly summer events happening this summer in East County. Take a look and enjoy some of the things our communities have to offer this summer!

 

This list is not exhaustive, and if we accidentally missed your local event, we'd love to include it— as long as it's free and open to the public. Please send our staff an email and we'd be happy to get it added to the list.
