The Summer Del Mar Racing Season is coming in San Diego! I always love attending opening day, which is Friday, July 21, 2023 this year! 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 went to a media preview party and received tickets to the races. All opinions are my own.
