If you’ve been enjoying any of Los Gatos’ many free musical series this summer, consider taking a trip next door to Saratoga this weekend! This Sunday, August 27th is the annual Saratoga Summer Music Series from 1pm – 7pm at Wildwood Park, just off the downtown strip.
Featuring live performances by local bands Aly & Friends, The Complications, and The Megatones. Kick back and relax on the lawn or dance through the day! Food, wine, and beer will be available for purchase in the park, and picnics are also welcome. This is a free event for the community, but registration is requested so there will be enough food and fun for everyone. Find more invormation on the event page linked above.
The Promenade in Los Gatos brings the summer music events we love to North Santa Cruz Avenue on several Thursdays this summer. Tonight is the last one!
The Promenade details
You can enjoy a car-free N. Santa Cruz Avenue with music, strolling, shopping, drinks, and dining between 5 pm and 9 pm. If you want to bring folding chairs to sit closer to the band, it’s allowed.
Tonight’s performers are Lavender Falls and FLO.
You’ll be able to purchase alcohol (1 drink at a time, with wristband at an ID station) up to 8 p.m.
Today’s weather will be mild – it should be a perfect evening to be outdoors!
All of the details are on the Los Gatos Chamber of Commerce’s website.

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!
