What we do
The Balboa Park Cultural Partnership serves as the collaborative body and collective voice for 28 arts, science, and cultural institutions in Balboa Park. Together we achieve greater effectiveness, innovation, and excellence and contribute to the vitality and sustainability of Balboa Park. Our collective of 500 trustees, 7,000 volunteers, and 3,500 staff serve more than 6.2 million visitors annually.
One Park – One Team
A program designed to connect Balboa Park organizations to celebrate our team members and encourage partnerships and collaborations.

Maker Faire San Diego 2016
Maker Faire San Diego is a festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker Movement and Do-It-Yourself Culture in the San Diego Region. Unique from other Maker Faires, MFSD will incorporate all of Balboa Park in what is being called an “outside-in” model to include Maker exhibitions within the museums as well as throughout the Balboa Park.
