Bernie Sanders isn’t slowing down. Here’s a look at his latest scheduled rallies and events for California. Sanders typically releases information about rallies and events about a week in advance.
San Diego, California — Friday, March 22, 2019
The event will be held at Waterfront Park on 1600 Pacific Highway in San Diego. Doors open at 4 p.m. Pacific and the event starts at 5:30 p.m.
Here’s a map:
According to SDParks.org, Waterfront Park’s biggest reservable area is the Civic Green, which holds a max capacity, standing, of 3,825. However, the brochure also lists five additional civic green spaces with capacities ranging from 2,775 to 1,125. In 2014, the San Diego Tribune noted that the attendance capacity for standing-room events in the park can range from 1,100 to 3,800 depending on the configuration.

Grand Park, operated by the Los Angeles Music Center, is a 12-acre park in the civic center of Los Angeles, California. This is one of Sanders’ biggest venues yet. On December 31, 2013, a New Year’s Eve event at Grand Park was attended by 25,000 people. The sixth annual NYELA at Grand Park drew more than 50,000 people.
You can see a list of prohibited items here. Pedestrian entrances, according to Grand Park’s website, are at 200 North Grand Ave., 221 North Hill St, 221 North Broadway, and 227 North Spring Street. Visitors are encouraged to ride the Metro Red or Purple lines to the Civic Center/Grand Park station. Parking is also available in Lot 10 for $3.50 every 15 minutes or $20 maximum a day and $10 on weekends.
