Do I need tickets to the entertainment in North Park?

Most shows you can buy tickets at the door, like at The Office or Bar Pink, but The Observatory North Park hosts bigger artists and may sell out beforehand. You can purchase tickets online for most places. Note, the shows at the Observatory often end early (before midnight) so make sure to check the hours.

Are there things to do for families in North Park?

The bars and venues on 30th Street are mostly catered to the drinking age crowd, but there is still plenty to do for families and kids. Street fairs and the farmers market are commonplace, as well as tasty restaurants and places to shop.
