Concerts in the Park

Downtown is a place where community, culture, and creativity collide. The Concerts in the Park series is a gathering place in the heart of the city and marks the official start to summer in Sacramento. The city’s longest-running, outdoor music festival has been around for over 20 years. Concerts in the Park attract more than 5,500 fans every Friday night during the three-month concert series. Each year the music festival showcases the talents of local bands, artists and DJs.

The application period to participate in Concerts in the Park 2016 has ended.  The lineup will be announced in March.
