The Summer Del Mar Racing Season is here in San Diego! I always love attending opening day, which is tomorrow, July 22nd! I also have the scoop for all Del Mar Racetrack events coming up! Going to the races on opening day is a longtime San Diego tradition. It is THE DAY to wear fun or fancy attire and lavash hats. It’s the day to attend “The Party”, bet on a few races and do all the people watching. If you’re looking for fun and fabulous events in Del Mar, check out our Del Mar Racetrack Events Guide below!

This year we attended a preview party at the Brigantine in Del Mar. They have awesome views of the racetrack if you’re looking for a pre or after party location.
We hope you have fun at any of the Del Mar racetrack events! Please let us know if you go! xo, Bri
We received media passes to check out opening day. All opinions are my own.
