Concerts in the Park (July-August)

The Brisbane Community Park is filled with music & cheer every summer when the Concert Series rolls around.  Bands will be announced at a later time, however tentative dates for the 2016 summer concert series are as follows:

  • Friday, July 8th
  • Friday, July 15th
  • Friday, July 22nd
  • Friday, July 29th
  • Friday, August 5th
  • Friday, August 12th

Concerts are held from 6:00-8:30pm.  One of the MOST important aspects of the planning process is sponsoship, as this summertime tradition is only made possible due to the generous tax-deductible donations made by Brisbane businesses and local families.  Do you also enjoy the bands and think the concerts add value to the community?  Then consider being a sponsor for this years series!  Sponsors are recognized by the City Council, acknowledged in City publications, and listed on the concert banner hung on the gazebo in the park.  If you have questions, please contact Steve Beaty at (415) 508-2144 or sbeaty@ci.brisbane.ca.us. Thank you in advance for your support of these wonderful community events!
