About Concerts in the Park

It’s one of Santa Barbara’s best summer traditions... come find out first-hand what brings up to 5,000 people down to Chase Palm Park on Thursday nights during the month of July. Make sure you dust off your dancing shoes, pack up a picnic dinner and your friends and family, and come celebrate summer and some great free music concerts in Santa Barbara’s beautiful Chase Palm Park! Located right on Cabrillo Boulevard along the gorgeous Santa Barbara waterfront. Don’t miss it!

All concerts are free and are held from 6:00-8:30 p.m. Thursday nights in Chase Palm Park at the Great Meadow Stage. No blanket or chair setup or space claiming until noon on the day of each concert. Have fun and enjoy the music!
