Los Gatos Free Music Concert Series: Music in the Park, Jazz on the Plazz and Vasona Vibrations Schedule of Events and Performers
Summer 2016 is just around the corner and we’re all revved up and ready for those free concerts around Los Gatos. Artists and schedules have been announced and, knowing that you are as excited about these as I am, I have compiled a calendar of free outdoor music events for us all! Below please find a compilation of the FOUR different Los Gatos free musical concert series (and don’t forget July 4th)! As always, the information below should be reliable but as with any concert or outdoors event it is subject to change, so double check the website prior to going and always read the rules (especially if you plan to picnic). Hope to see you there!
(1) Vasona Vibrations 5-7pm every Saturday June & July at Vasona Lake County Park, schedule of performers here. Performances are held on the lawn near the Ranger Office, just down the hill from the pedestrian entrance at University Ave and Pepper Tree Lane. Please not that a $6 fee is charged for parking within the County Parks.
(2) Music in the Park 5-7pm Sundays from June 19 – August 28 at the Los Gatos Civic Center campus lawn.
Get more information (rules, dates, location, schedule and lineup) at the website or the Town of Los Gatos web page.
(3) Jazz on the Plazz 6:30-8:30pm Wednesdays, June 22 – August 24 at the Los Gatos Town Plaza (where the farmers market is held) on West Main St and Santa Cruz Ave by the post office. More information and a schedule is available on the website.
(4) Fiesta de Artes open 10am-6pm Saturday, August 13th and Sunday, August 14th only, at the Los Gatos Civic Center grounds. The Fiesta is the only art and wine festival in Los Gatos and offers musical performances both days, schedule here.
Don’t forget to include the Fourth of July in your plans – it is always spectacular, and is one of the more child-friendly concerts! The events are held at Oak Meadow Park, and Los Gatos citizens park for free.
