Orchids & Onions

Orchid or Onion? You Help Decide.

Ever ask yourself why a place becomes a favorite spot that people return to time and again to make memories that last a lifetime? Or what makes San Diego “San Diego”? Why is our city so special, and could it be even more special? And what about the future of our downtown, the waterfront, the parks, the neighborhoods we call home?

To answer these questions, we turn to you—yes you! SDAF’s Orchids & Onions program brings San Diegans together to decide which parts of the built environment—be it building, park or plaza—make our city a better place to live. Each year brings in a whole new crop of projects, spaces and places to consider, nominate, comment on and vote into fame or infamy.

2020 Orchids & Onions Gala

The 2020 Orchids & Onions Gala will be held online, presenting the first ever opportunity to cast your vote for the People’s Choice Orchid and Onion during the gala! Join us on October 1st, 2020, for the virtual awards gala! Every attendee will have the opportunity to vote and the winners will be announced at the end of the night. 

Thank You to Our Sponsors!
