You made it! The Bon Temps Social Club of San Diego!

The Bon Temps Social Club of San Diego holds Monthly Dances featuring bands from Louisiana, and social events in San Diego, and is an active partner in larger events such as Gator By The Bay Zydeco, Blues and Crawfish Festival, and Balboa Park's annual  December Nights. You don't have to be a member to join us at our dance events, but the modest cost of membership helps us measurably in producing our events. Members receive discounts and  special opportunities not available to non-members. We hope you'll join us at our next dance event, and consider joining our social club.
