TGIF Concerts in the Parks Series Begins June 24, 2022

~ Volunteers Needed ~


Many now know the annual TGIF Concerts in the Parks series is back for 2022.


The first concert is TONIGHT, June 24th, at Stagecoach Park. Tonight will feature the Back Pocket Whiskey Fellas and the Bayou Brothers.


Volunteers are needed for the concert series for a variety of tasks. These may include greeting attendees, handing out programs, helping with opportunity Drawing Tickets and perhaps more. Volunteers hours are 3:30 to 7:30 but they are happy to have people to help for less time, too!


Those interested can sign up at the Carlsbad Friends of the Arts website.


The TGIF Concerts in the Parks are a highlight of summer in Carlsbad, and is perhaps the best summer entertainment available in North San Diego County!


Here’s the rest of the 2022 schedule:


Stagecoach Community Park

July 1 – The Corvelles


Poinsettia Community Park

July 8 – The Mighty Untouchables

July 15 – Phat Cat Swinger 


Calavera Hills Community Park

July 22 – High Tide Society

July 29 – The Ryan Hiller Band


Alga Norte Community Park

August 5 – Sabrosas Latin Orquestra

August 12 – The Detroit Underground

August 19 – 80z All-Stars


TGIF Concerts in the Parks summer series in Carlsbad


I would expect big crowds given last year’s series was only virtual. So plan to arrive early to find the best parking and seats up front or you may be getting a bit of exercise. The park opens for seating beginning at 5 pm.


Be sure to bring dinner, refreshments and low back chairs and perhaps a blanket. This year there will not be any food vendors available…but BYO can be lots of fun and that works for most people I think.


And don’t forget some money to buy the Opportunity Drawing Tickets for some great prize drawings!


There are free shuttles at the parks, and signs will direct you to parking for shuttle pick-up. Shuttles run from 4:30 until 9 pm.

Jeff I love the outdoor concerts.  It is finally starting to warm up around here, so our Summer Concerts should be starting up very soon.

Hi Kathy Streib 

The TGIF concerts (the raffle tickets) are a big annual fundraiser for the Carlsbad Friends of the Arts program in Carlsbad. And who doesn't appreciate live free music in a beautiful park on a Friday summer evening. And there's plenty of exposure for the businesses that provide the prizes every week.
