Spring Festival

Spend the day at our Spring Flute Festival, flute fun for all ages! 

Our festival has been attended for decades at various locations throughout San Diego.  Each year, we host fabulous guest artists, classes, flute choirs and a variety of competitions to suit all flutists. 

Our 2019 festival will be held on Sunday, April 14th, 2019 at Palomar College, and will include vendors, competitions, FUNdraisers, exciting concerts and classes featuring a wonderful guest artist: Leone Buyse!

It is our desire to serve the SDFG membership and provide the best possible festival for everyone. It can’t be done without our capable board and other volunteers. Please let us know if you are interested in assisting us with the 2019 Spring Festival.  We have about 50 jobs to fill, and each volunteer shift is only about an hour or two!
