Hi everyone,

It’s with a very heavy heart that I write this. It’s safe to say the 2020 Concerts in the Park season will be almost non-existent. After speaking with the Cultural Arts Commission liaison, Kelly Purvis, the best we can hope for is maybe, and this is a big MAYBE, the last COUPLE of weeks in August and/or Labor Day Sunday, Sept. 6. These dates are based on ONLY if the schools are back in session and we get the ok from the city. Also, only Coronado local bands would play those dates. We will not produce the program this year. Any sponsor or advertiser who has sent us a payment will be contacted and asked if they want us to return the funds or keep them as payment for 2021. Our website will be updated as well regarding the status of the summer.

It’s a very strange time and I can only hope people now appreciate how important our small businesses are and how essential tourism is to our community, along with hair and nail salons!

We will celebrate our 50th Anniversary next year in 2021! Trust me when I say, next year’s line up will be EPIC!!!!

Stay safe and healthy and I can’t wait to see you all again in our concert shirts
