The park’s annual Music in the Valle concert series kicks off on May 24, 2019 and runs through September 6. September 13 will be held as a rain make-up date. Concerts begin at 7 p.m. May 24 – August 9, and at 6:30 p.m. August 16 –September 13. Admission to the concerts is free, but a $5 donation per person or $10 donation per family to the park is recommended and greatly appreciated! Seating is not provided, so bring chairs or a blanket. Food is available for purchase at all concerts, see food trucks listed below.

If you attend most of the concerts during our summer season, consider purchasing a 2019 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. When the bucket gets passed – you hold up your Bucket List! 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.
