What Makes Red Dress Party San Diego Different?

Red Dress Party San Diego is a night of music and dancing mixed with charity and fun, where all attendees – and we mean everyone – is required to wear a red dress, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation. This serves both as a powerful sign of solidarity and compassion for those affected by HIV/AIDS and a way to unite the crowd in one radiant theme. At this unique celebration we invite everyone to be brave, let loose, and celebrate impact.

Making a SPLASH with an All-New Venue

RDPSD 2018 will take place at the Port Pavilion on Broadway Pier. Upon arrival, attendees can be dropped off directly at the front doors of the venue. You will then enter into the Main Foyer — a space that is normally used for cruise ship registration, so an ideal area for guest check in.

The main party will take place in the Pavilion, a 15,000 square foot mega-space that is ALL ONE LEVEL with room for 1,000 attendees. This Pavilion features 40-foot tall ceilings and massive windows that give views to the San Diego Bay. On the back end of the Pavilion are oversized roll-up doors that open to the View Court — a large outdoor space right on the water. Guests can expect all their favorites, such as live entertainment, DJs, photo booths, on-site HIV testing, and a night of celebration and impact.

Fun and a Fundraiser

This year we aim to raise $30,000; however, we have a stretch goal of $42,000 to make our combined, four-year donation to the San Diego HIV/AIDS community over $100,000! Here are ways you can help get us to our goal and stretch goal:

  • Attend this year’s Red Dress Party San Diego (and better yet bring a friend!)
  • Come to any of our pre-events (like the RDPSD Launch Party or Red Dress Swap)
  • Spread the word about #rdpsd2018 on social media to drum up awareness
  • Donate to our organization online or at any of our events (all donations are tax deductible)


  • Do I seriously have to wear a dress? Yes, seriously. Everyone – that means everyone – has to wear a red dress (or dress-like garment) to the event. You will not be allowed to enter the event if you aren’t in a red dress.
  • Is there an age restriction to attend the event? Yes, you must be 21 years of age or older with valid ID.
  • Is my ticket refundable? No, all ticket sales are final; however, tickets may be transferred to another person up to 48 hours prior to the event.
  • Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? If you want, but we will have a guest list and electronic check-in at registration. Just bring a valid photo ID.
