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!

Los Gatos Free Music Concert Series List of Events

(1) Vasona Vibrations  5-7pm every Saturday June & July at Vasona Lake County Park, schedule of performers 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.
