Update 1: More schedule information available on the chart below!
Update 2: All schedules for this summer are available and have been added to the chart below!
Summer 2017 is just around the corner and we’re all revved up and ready for those free concerts around Los Gatos. Most 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 Independence Day festivities)! 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 will be updated 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 note that a $6 fee is charged for parking within the County Parks.
(2) Music in the Park 5-7pm Sundays from June 18 – August 27 with a dance party finale on Saturday, September 2nd at the Los Gatos Civic Center campus lawn. Get more information (rules, dates, location, schedule and lineup) when available at the website or the Town of Los Gatos web page.
(3) Jazz on the Plazz 6:30-8:30pm Wednesdays, June 21 – August 23 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-9pm Saturday August 12th, and 9am-5pm Sunday August 13th at Downtown North Santa Cruz Avenue at the intersection with Main Street. The Fiesta is the only art and wine festival in Los Gatos and offers musical performances both days from start to finish. Find the 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 residents park for free. A new event will
be held the weekend prior, the Red, White, & Blue Block Party on Saturday, July 1st. Santa Cruz Avenue in Downtown will be closed for festivities including, music, family games, a bike parade, and dunk tank.
