Weekend Events in Costa Mesa

Posted on September 19, 2013 | 10:04am

Before we set the clocks back and fully recognize that it’s no longer summer, there are some great events in Costa Mesa this weekend that will help postpone that reality.  From inspirational talks and an art exhibition to rock climbing and a sports themed fashion show, the City of the Arts is host to some fun events to fill your weekend and help ease you into the upcoming cooler climate.

Starting tomorrow, the TEDx Orange Coast annual conference will be at Segerstrom Center for the Arts.  We previously highlighted this inspiring event in our blog with some more details on the TEDx series.  This year’s theme is “Beautiful Minds” and features dozens of speakers who provide insight to their lives through a story-telling format.  The conference will be Friday and Saturday and is full of talks that are each less than 18 minutes long and designed to educate, inform, inspire, entertain and more.  For tickets and other TEDx Orange Coast information, click here.

While Memorial Day’s origins are somber, the long weekend has also come to represent something joyous – the unofficial beginning of summer.  Many people use the three day weekend to enjoy the warm weather at the beach, barbecues in the park or watching fireworks.  While all three of those activities are well worth it during the holiday weekend, there are some great events this Memorial Day Weekend in Costa Mesa that don’t require charcoal.
