5 Ways to Celebrate Women’s History Month Near Downtown San Diego

  |     |   Things to Do

The month of March is Women's History Month, and there are few better places to spend it than in downtown San Diego. Here are 5 ways you can celebrate women, including ideas that cost little to nothing. You don't need a lot of money to give back to women in the community.

1. Look for Women Artists at the Spanish Village Art Center

The Spanish Village Art Center began in the 1930s as a small artists' colony for the California Pacific International Exposition. Now, over 200 artists are featured in the space and the public has access to more than 37 galleries and working artist studios. Spend time looking for and admiring the work of women artists who work with different mediums and explore what women have contributed to the San Diego art scene.

2. Get Takeout from a Woman-Owned Restaurant in the Gaslamp Quarter

The Gaslamp Quarter is the heart of downtown San Diego and features a number of restaurants. Give your patronage to a restaurant owned or operated by a woman. Or, tip a woman server a little extra if you have the chance.

3. Buy from Woman Vendors at the Tuna Harbor Dockside Market

On Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., a dock on the northern side of Seaport Village hosts the Tuna Harbor Dockside Market. The market features fresh-caught seafood and sustainably farmed seaweed from area fishers and other vendors. Look for booths operated by women to purchase from.

4. Take Someone Special for a Night Out

If you have a special woman in your life, treat her to a night out in the Gaslamp quarter, the beach, or a nearby park for a socially distanced celebration. Have a picnic at Balboa Park or walk the boardwalk at the Embarcadero. Let your family member or friend know how special they are to you and how much you appreciate their presence in your life. Thank them for their effort with a card or small gift that can become a memorable keepsake.

5. Research Notable Women of San Diego History
