Peninsula Free Outdoor Concerts - Summer 2017
Calendar compiled by Fabrice Nye - Updated: 05/11/17 15:30
Enjoy FREE music all summer long in multiple outdoors venues and parks of the Peninsula from Downtown Sunnyvale to Stern Grove in San Francisco. There is a concert nearly every day! Feel free to bring a blanket to sit on, or if you bring lawn chairs, but be sure they are low seating, so that everyone can enjoy the sights and sounds of the Bay Area's best bands. Bring treats and picnics. For all midday events, make sure you have the requisite sun protection. All events are fun-filled family affairs. If you would like to make corrections to this calendar, please e-mail me. For an Excel version of this calendar, click here.
