The TGIF Concerts in the Parks have been a popular summer event series for many years in Carlsbad, offering 9 free outdoor concerts in 3 or 4 of our best parks on consecutive Fridays from 6:00 to 8:00 PM.
The TGIF Concerts featured a wide range of music (jazz, latin, blues and much more) and some pretty impressive bands, and were typically attended by a couple thousand people or so, enjoying dining al fresco and listening to terrific music.
Last year, not surprisingly, the TGIF Concert series was canceled.
In 2021, however, there is a new option to tide you over until the TGIF Concerts in the Parks series returns in 2022, the 35th anniversary (photo is from a previous TGIF Concert I attended)…TGIF In Your Backyard!
Enjoy your own TGIF celebration in your backyard with family and friends, and listen to 4 virtual concerts recorded at the Schulman Auditorium at the Dove Library Complex in South Carlsbad.
Recordings will be available through the City of Carlsbad website and will be available for viewing for a week. Stay tuned for more information.
Here’s the concert schedule:
July 9 – Euphoria Brass Band
July 23 – Kimba Light
August 6 – 80z Allstars
August 20 – The Mighty Untouchables (a favorite at TGIF over the years)
