San Diego Sister Cities Association


Celebrate the 30th anniversary of San Diego Sister Cities Association with a beautiful and authentic showcase of cultures from the 20 counties and communities in which we have partnerships. Experience an immersive environment of photographs and artifacts, multimedia installations, VR experience, fashion, and traditional dance, food and cultural music.

SanDISCA’s mission as the umbrella organization is to increase the visibility, effectiveness, efficiency and viability of the City of San Diego’s Sister City Societies and to guide the development of proposed Sister City relationships, thereby supporting their missions in the areas of cultural, educational, and economic relationships. To promote peace through mutual respect, understanding, and cooperation – one individual, one community at a time. Formed in 1993, SanDISCA was created as an umbrella organization for all Sixteen Sister City Societies of San Diego. SanDISCA works to maintain citizen–diplomat relations with each sister city while each individual sister society has its own membership, pursues its own mission and conducts its own cultural and educational programs.
