Concerts in the park

The City of Santa Barbara Parks and Recreation Department has announced the return of Concerts in the Park. The free, family-friendly summer tradition has brought large crowds and a range of musical entertainment to Chase Palm Park since its inception in 2000.

Concerts in the Park Series

Concerts will take place at the Great Meadow in Chase Palm Park every Thursday in July from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The community is invited to bring blankets, chairs, picnics, family, and friends to enjoy an evening of free music along Cabrillo Boulevard.

The full 2023 Concerts in the Park lineup is as follows:

July 6 – Paradise Kings (Rock, Blues, and Swing)

July 13 – The Molly Ringwald Project (80’s Dance Hits)

July 20 – Captain Cardiac and the Coronaries (50’s & 60’s Rock n’ Roll)

July 27 – Mezcal Martini (Latin Jazz)

Bands were selected through an online application process, which received over 40 submissions. Applications to perform during the 2024 concert series will open in November.

This event series is held in partnership with the PARC Foundation.
