At this time, week pass holders will receive their VIP or GA lanyards that give them access to the remaining nights of runway shows. Once you have a lanyard you do not have to wait in line for check in the remaining nights. YOU MUST BRING YOUR LANYARD WITH YOU EACH NIGHT TO GET IN.

FAQ’s:

1. How early should I arrive?

Doors open at 6pm. Friday & Saturday night, we will have VIP Reception starting at 5pm so be sure to come early!  Arrive no later than 6:15pm or you’ll miss part of the show! FWSD starts on time!

4. Parking?

  • There will be no parking available at Hotel La Jolla. Drop off and pick up only.
  • Want to drive yourself? We have an app for that! Parking Panda allows you to reserve your spot in one of the local La Jolla parking structures ahead of time.  No searching for parking, just pull into your pre-reserved spot!
  • Some of the local businesses also offer valet parking, but there are limited spots so get there early if this is your plan!
  • Don’t feel like driving? UBER & Lyft are great alternatives, and can drop you off right in front of the venue!
