“The Heights,” consisting of University Heights, Normal Heights and Kensington is a thriving San Diego neighborhood with notable restaurants, bars and entertainment venues. The neighborhood spans approximately two miles on Adams Avenue, and this April 25 and 26 you can see what the Heights really has to offer.
Adams Avenue Unplugged is a free event that is in its fourth year of production. This year spectators will enjoy more than 135 artists performing on 25 stages along a Adams Avenue. Performances will be held Saturday, April 25 from 12-noon to 10:00 pm, and Sunday, April 26, from 12-noon to 7:00 pm.

The festival will feature performances staged in participating restaurants, bars, coffeehouses and galleries, as well as four outdoor community stages along Adams Avenue. Many of the performers will play multiple sets to allow attendees to catch their favorite artists while taking advantage of the neighborhood’s many unique businesses along Adams Avenue. In addition, there will be a chance to purchase priority seating for specific headliners performing in the Church on Mansfield for $10.
Adams Avenue Unplugged will be held on Adams Avenue, from University Heights on the west end, through Normal Heights, and into parts of Kensington on the east. Since street parking is limited, organizers will provide free trolley service along Adams Avenue during the event. In addition, mass transit bus service (MTS #2 & 11) will also be available since Adams Avenue will be open to traffic during the event.
