The Governor canceled trick-or-treating (and no singing on Thanksgiving!), but he can’t steal all the sweetness from Halloween. This year, against all odds, the Gaslamp presents a haunting array of socially distanced, COVID-compliant entertainment offerings. Find event listings here.


20th Annual Fall Back Festival


On November 1, 2020, the Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation (GQHF) will hold its annual family-friendly Fall Back Festival. For 20 years, the GQHF has hosted Fall Back Festival, a family-friendly street faire that celebrates the history and culture of the Gaslamp Quarter. This year, San Diego families can bring the history of the Gaslamp Quarter into their own homes or explore the historic neighborhood, while remaining safely distanced, by participating in a scavenger hunt. GQHF, 410 Island Ave., Gaslamp Quarter.
