Thursday Promenades in Downtown Los Gatos

There’s a party in downtown every Thursday Promenade beginning this week! Every Thursday evening, 3pm to 8pm from July 1st to August 12th, the stretch of North Santa Cruz Avenue in downtown Los Gatos between Main St and Bachman (that’s from Dolce Spazio to Andalé for the foodies) will transform into “the promenade.” The street will be open to foot traffic, and two stages will bookend the promenade with live musical entertainment!

Bands will begin performances at 4:30pm on the North Stage (Bachman), and at 5:30pm on the South Stage (Main), with entertainment from a different group each week. See the lineup (and any changes) on the Los Gatos Chamber of Commerce calendar, the Thursday Promenades page linked above, or Camber of Commerce social media pages.

Drivers, plan to reroute around this stretch of N. Santa Cruz Ave on Thursday nights. While there is usually plenty of parking along the old rail line behind the shops, it tends to fill up with festival traffic, so schedule in some extra time for parking. If you’re coming for the event, consider traveling by bike, or using a ridesharing service if you plan on patronizing any of the bars or brewery!

As someone who regularly attends free summer concerts in Los Gatos, which were mostly canceled earlier this year (and the Fiesta de Arts / Wine Walk postponed until September), the Promenade is music to my ears!

So invite your friends to eat, drink, play, and stroll the night away!

Los Gatos Free Summer Music Concerts 2008

DandilionThe town of Los Gatos enjoys a large number of wonderful free music concerts across several different venues each summer. These are fun events held around town – a great chance to unwind with family and friends and a picnic on the lawn. Mark your calendars!

(This info will be updated as announcements are made.)

Jazz On The Plazz – Wednesday evening series, 6:30-8:30pm in Los Gatos Town Plaza Park beginning June 25th (10 concerts)

Vasona Vibrations – Saturdays, 5-7pm at Vasona Lake County Park (also free, but fee to park) beginning June 7th through the end of July (8 concerts)

Music in the Park – Sundays on the Civic Center Lawn from 5-7pm – dates/schedule to be announced (10 concerts)

Last summer, Los Gatans also were treated to a free concert series on the deck next to Border’s Books in Old Town, Los Gatos, too. No word so far on whether that wonderful opportunity will return.

For even more music and entertainment opportunities, view and bookmark the Los Gatos Chamber of Commerce’s 2008 Community Calendar and also the MetroActive website (which will include neighboring communities as well).
