Spend a summer under the stars with the City of San Gabriel’s annual Summer Nights! The Community Services Department, in conjunction with the Mission Playhouse and Community Development Department, will host seven summer concerts and three summer movies every Thursday night through Aug. 10. All of the events are free to attend and take place at either Mission Playhouse Plaza or Vincent Lugo Park.
The series will kick off on June 8th with Surf’s Up San Gabriel, a summer beach party and concert in the Mission District from 6:00 p.m to 9:30 p.m. The event will be a great chance to bring the community together for a fun street festival complete with live entertainment (The Deb Taren Band, The Dancing Fire), kids’ activities, food trucks (Kogi BBQ, The Wafl Truck, Slammin’ Sliders, Ridges Churro Bar, and more), and a beer/wine garden.
The Mission Playhouse will host three free outdoor concerts:
June 29: Summer Nights Jazz Series, free outdoor concert featuring Kelly Che
July 20: Summer Nights Jazz Series, free outdoor concert featuring Louie Cruz Beltran & his Jazz Ensemble
August 10: Summer Nights Jazz Series, free outdoor concert featuring Dale Fielder Quartet
