In 2010, American Express founded Small Business Saturday to help businesses with their most pressing need — getting more customers. The day encourages people to shop at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The single day has grown into a powerful movement, and more people are taking part than ever before. This year, the big day is Nov 28.
You can #shopsmall throughout La Jolla Village. We welcome you and yours to find your bliss throughout this holiday weekend, and enjoy the Jewel of San Diego!
1/28-31/16: Farmers Insurance Open
Torrey Pines Golf Course
Seven-time champion Tiger Woods and other top players on the PGA Tour compete in this annual golf tournament while also raising money for local at-risk youth and military families.
It is fitting that when translated into Spanish, La Jolla means “the jewel,” because La Jolla truly is the diamond of the West Coast. La Jolla has become the embodiment of luxury, class and style in San Diego. The chic allure of La Jolla’s avenues has drawn the finest automobiles to this coastal town for the tenth year at the La Jolla Concours d’Elegance and The La Jolla Motor Car Classic at the Concours.
The La Jolla Concours d’Elegance features various types of fine automobile gems. Past years have showcased horseless carriages, Italian marques, British marques, Woodies, 50’s classics, American sports cars (with a salute to GM on their 100th anniversary), and the automobiles of Carroll Shelby. Spectators from all over the nation come to the breathtaking shores of La Jolla to view their favorite classics. This year, the La Jolla Concours d’Elegance will be tipping its hat to some of the world’s finest Classics: Rolls Royce, Bentley, Bugatti, Cadillac, and of course Duesenberg. We hope once again that if diamonds are forever, then cars are timeless.
According to Webster, “Concours” comes from the French, and means “a crowd or confluence of things; also a park promenade.” The term conjures up romantic visions of beautiful women in haute couture in a park-like setting surrounded by sparkling coaches, glistening groomed horses, gorgeous flowers, champagne, fine art and sculpture, and later, by the finest automotive art.
The La Jolla Half Marathon is one of America's most picturesque and beautiful point-to-point races. Starting at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, the course follows a scenic coastal route before reaching the challenging climb to the summit of Torrey Pines State Park. After leaving the park, the course rolls atop Torrey Pines mesa, continues down through the residential district of La Jolla Shores, and finishes in Ellen Browning Scripps Park at La Jolla Cove. The La Jolla Half Marathon is race #2 in the Half Marathon Triple Crown Series.

Relay for Life of La Jolla, and event of the American Cancer Society, will be held June 11th and 12th at Muirlands Middle School, located at 1056 Nautilus St, La Jolla, CA 92037.
It's a 24 hour event to raise funds and awareness for the American Cancer Society and it runs from 9am on the 11th to 9am on the 12th.
There will be different ceremonies throughout the event to honor those who have been affected by cancer, as well as a variety of entertainment and fundraisers.
The idea of Relay for Life is to get together of team of 8 - 20 people, though we have had teams with less, and the participants on the team take turns walking, or running, around the track for the 24 hours. Each team gets a campsite and we encourage the teams to camp out overnight.
We are also always looking for volunteers and new committee members for anyone wishing to get involved. And of course, any businesses that are willing to do sponsorships or donations (either food items or items for our raffle) are always welcome!
