Carlsbad TGIF Concerts in the Parks Series

Begins June 23, 2017


OK maybe it’s a little early, but it’s time to start thinking about summer in Carlsbad and the very popular TGIF Concerts in the Parks starting Friday, June 23rd. The free TGIF Concerts in the Parks are truly a highlight of our Carlsbad summers, and probably the best entertainment option around in North San Diego County!


TGIF Concerts in the Parks in Carlsbad


The combination of great music, in one of 4 beautiful Carlsbad parks, on a summer evening, makes for a special time for area residents and visitors. And they’re FREE!! What more can you ask?


This year will be the 32nd season of Carlsbad’s popular TGIF Concerts in the Parks series. The concert series is proudly presented by the City of Carlsbad’s Cultural Arts Office, taking place on 9 consecutive Friday nights in 4 of Carlsbad’s beautiful community parks.


Note – the schedule is a little different this year!


The TGIF Concerts in the Parks are very popular. You can count on several thousand people, a sea of blankets and chairs enjoying the great outdoors, al fresco dining, lots of kids, dancing, and top notch live music in a wide range of styles. The concerts run from 6 – 8 with intermission midway, during which they raffle off a bunch of really cool prizes that are sure to please, and funds raised go to support the arts programs in our community.

Hi James Dray 

They are great fun and always well attended. We usually get to a couple of them. Seems that most of the bands are new this year. You can't argue with good, and free, music on a summer night.

Have a great weekend!

We always look forward to these concerts. Good and free music, good food, and summer weather by the coast can't be beat!

Perhaps we'll run into each other. Not sure when we are going yet, Sandy Padula and Norm Padula, JD, GRI NMLS#1483386  - it tends to get decided week by week!

Enjoy your Sunday. Good luck with the Open House!

Hi Jeff - every time I think about TGIF I think of my old restaurant company.  These events will make Fridays enjoyable this summer.
