The Spreckels Organ Pavilion is the home of the world’s largest outdoor pipe organ with over 4,500 pipes. Constructed for the 1915 Pan American Exposition and given to the city by John and Adolf Spreckels, the Pavilion is located in the heart of Balboa Park and is the setting for a wide variety of public and civic events.

The facility hosts an International Organ Festival on Monday evenings at 7:30 p.m. during the summer and the Twilight in the Park Concert Series on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays during the summer at 6:15pm. In addition, the Pavilion is the site of numerous concerts, graduations, weddings and special events throughout the year.

Free, public organ concerts by the Civic Organist or guest artists are presented at 2 p.m. every Sunday afternoon of the year.
