Spreckels Organ Pavilion, housing one of the world's largest outdoor pipe organs, was donated to the City of San Diego by John D. and Adolph Spreckels in 1914 for the Panama-California Exposition.
This unique outdoor organ, which contains over 4,500 pipes, was built by the Austin Organ Company of Hartford, Connecticut. The organ is housed in an ornate vaulted structure with highly embellished gables (llok at my picture).
The pavilion area provides comfortable seating for 2,400, with wheelchair access.
Free year-round organ concerts are held on Sundays from 2:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Guest performers are scheduled at least once a month. The annual free Summer International Organ Festival is presented from mid-June through August on Monday evenings at 7:30 p.m.
ALL CONCERTS AND PARKING ARE FREE!
