Spring Festival

April 5, 2020 at Point Loma university

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 2020 festival will be held on Sunday, April 5th, 2020 at Point Loma University, and will include vendors, competitions, exciting concerts, and classes featuring a wonderful guest artist: Linda Chesis!

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 2020 Spring Festival.  We have about 50 jobs to fill, and each volunteer shift is only about an hour or two!
