TGIF Concerts in the Parks Updates

Music Events in Carlsbad

As many people know the annual TGIF Concerts in the Parks series started Friday June 24th at Stagecoach Park. The 2nd concert just happened a couple of days ago so 7 remain.

Here are a few updates since my last post.

First, the schedule has changed slightly. As a result, there are now 3 concerts at Poinsettia Park instead of 2. And there are 2 concerts instead of 3 at Alga Norte Community Park. However, the bands are the same as previously listed.

Here’s the schedule from the Carlsbad City web site:

Poinsettia Community Park

July 8 – The Mighty Untouchables

July 15 – Phat Cat Swinger

 NEW – July 22 – High Tide Society

Calavera Hills Community Park

July 29 – The Ryan Hiller Band

NEW – August 5 – Sabrosas Latin Orquestra

Alga Norte Community Park

August 12 – The Detroit Underground

August 19 – 80z All-Stars

Additionally, the venues open at 4 pm which is earlier than previously announced.

Here’s a video from the City of Carlsbad. This is one of the TGIF Concerts in the Parks in the past.

There are 2 or 3 continuous free shuttles at the parks. Thus, you’ll see signs to tell you where to park. However, here is the information from the Carlsbad City website for shuttle parking locations.

Poinsettia Community Park: North Coast Calvary Chapel, 1330 Poinsettia Lane

Calavera Hills Community Park: Sage Creek High School, 3900 Cannon Road

Alga Norte Park: Park at 5815 El Camino Real

Shuttles run from 4:15 until 9:15 pm (slightly earlier and later times than previously reported).
