Jazz Music Highlights

Carlsbad TGIF Jazz in the Parks takes place in summer, on Friday evenings, from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m., from June 28 to August 23, 2013. The summer series features nine musical performances at three different parks in Carlsbad, CA (See schedule below). Presented by the City of Carlsbad's Cultural Arts Office, the free jazz concerts have been a tradition since 1986.


The 28th season of TGIF offers three great new bands and six fabulous encore groups. You’ll want to wear your dancing shoes to every single concert!
