The park’s annual Music in the Valle concert series kicks off on May 25, 2018 and runs through September 7. Concerts begin at 7 p.m. May 25 – August 10, and at 6:30 p.m. August 17 –September 7. Admission to the concerts is free, but a $5 donation per person or $10 donation per family to the park is recommended. Seating is not provided, so bring chairs or a blanket. Food is available for purchase at all concerts.

If you attend most of the concerts during our summer season, consider purchasing a 2018 Bucket List pass. A Bucket List pass allows you to make a single, up-front donation to the park rather than bring a donation to each concert. Passes are $150 per family or $75 per individual. Contact us to make a purchase, or make an online contribution and indicate “Bucket List” in the comments field.
