Live Music, Santa Cruz Beach Concert Series
The Santa Cruz Boardwalk is more a thrilling roller-coasters and tasty treats. Every Friday night through September 24th, the award-winning seaside amusement park presents their free outdoor concert series, featuring hit bands from the ’60s through current day recording artists.
A concert on the beach is not only a chance to hear great live music, it’s a little slice of surf-city heaven, a perfect combination of natural beauty and live musical entertainment. To look out as the sunsets over the Pacific ocean while hearing Papa Doo Run Run, a Boardwalk concert staple, perform “Surfin’ USA” makes for a perfectly picturesque summer evening on Santa Cruz coast.
The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is the place to see all your favorite bands on the beach this summer. Alcohol is allowed on the Boardwalk, but not on the beach. A low beach chair is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the music, and a sweater coud come in handy should the wind pick up or the fog rolls in.
With two free shows every Friday evening at 6:30 and 8:30 on the Beach Bandstand, you can bring your beach blanket and chairs to settle-in for an evening of good times with good friends and live entertainment.
