To help you get to where you’re going Balboa Park Map
The Student Shakespeare Festival is held in beautiful Balboa Park. We set up several open-air stages along the El Prado pedestrian promenade and Casa Del Prado area.
Hundreds of students from K-12 representing San Diego City and County schools, perform 10-minute scenes, sonnets, music,and/or dance from Shakespeare’s plays. Truly a sight to behold and enjoyed by hundreds of spectators and proud family members!
