Carlsbad's TGIF Concerts in the Parks offers great music, plenty of room to dance, picnicking, free shuttle buses, fun hands-on art activities for the kids.
For more than 30 years, the City of Carlsbad Cultural Arts Office has presented live music events throughout the city. When summer rolls around in Carlsbad, everyone gears up for TGIF Concerts in the Parks! The 2019 season runs Friday nights from June through August and features great music, food and a chance to dance the night away with friends and neighbors in a beautiful outdoor setting.
This year's band lineup offers a music genre for everyone, from jazz to swing, latin to blues. Concerts are free and open to the public and move across the city, from Stagecoach to Poinsettia, Calavera Hills and Alga Norte community parks. A free shuttle service is available at most concert locations, as onsite parking is limited.
The music at TGIF is just the beginning. A variety of food vendors are onsite at the events, or you can bring your own feast from home. Family Open Studios is back with free, hands-on art making activities for all ages. And of course, there will be plenty of chances to enter the Opportunity Drawing from the Carlsbad Friends of the Arts. There are prize packages each night, all to support future arts and cultural events in Carlsbad.
