The Carlsbad TGIF Concerts in the Parks Series Starts Tonight

 TGIF Concerts in the Parks Series in Carlsbad

Starting Tonight


This first concert features the Stoney B Blues Band and will be held at Stagecoach Community Park at 3420 Camino de los Coches off Rancho Santa Fe Road across the street from the shopping center. The next 2 concerts, June 29 and July 66, are at the same park.


Here’s the full concert schedule.


2018 marks the 33rd season of the TGIF Concerts in the Parks series, with 9 concerts planned in 4 of Carlsbad’s community parks. The TGIF concert series is a major fund raising event for the City of Carlsbad art programs and is presented by the City of Carlsbad’s Cultural Arts Office.


TGIF Concert in the Park in Carlsbad


If you’ve attended, and many Carlsbadians have, you know how popular these TGIF Concerts in the Parks are, which means a big crowd and challenging parking unless you arrive early. It’s a wonderful way to spend a summer evening with your blankets and chairs, dinner and drinks, plenty of kids, great dancing (yourself or just watching), and terrific live music in a wide range of styles.


The concerts start at 6 and conclude around 8. There is an intermission around 7 when they raffle off some pretty cool prizes; volunteers wander through the crowds selling tickets being sold during the first hour.


It’s fun to win, of course – we never have!! – but be sure to save your raffle tickets if you aren’t lucky, as you will have another chance at the final concert on August 17.

Jeff I love the outdoor concerts.  Ours will be starting back up in a few weeks.

Sounds like the perfect way to spend Friday nights with family and friends Jeff. Hope your number finally appears during one of the raffles

We enjoy them too George Souto although we usually only get to 2 or 3 of them, for a variety of reasons.

We always enjoy them whether alone or with friends. Winning would be fun...perhaps someday...but I like that the funds all benefit local art programs.

Outdoor venues and music in the summer are the perfect combination. Sounds like a delightful way to spend a Friday evening. D
