The City of Santa Barbara Parks and Recreation Department is excited to emerge from the pandemic and announce the return of the Concerts in the Park for its 21st season. The wildly popular summer concert series will kick off on Thursday, July 7 with Santa Barbara’s favorite 80’s tribute band, The Molly Ringwald Project.

Concerts in the Park performances take place in Chase Palm Park from 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. on Thursday evenings. These free events have become a Santa Barbara tradition since the program was founded in 2000.
