East Bay Summer Concert Round-Up for Families - 510 Families

East Bay Summer Concert Round-Up for Families

If your family enjoys listening to live music, there are a many outdoor concerts you can see for FREE. Most of these events aren’t specifically geared toward children, though families are welcome to join. Many concerts don’t require pre-registration or tickets, so pack up a blanket, sunscreen, maybe a picnic, and drop into an event whenever is best for your schedule.

Thank you to the Lafayette Chamber for sponsoring this guide. Their Rock the Plaza concert series is on Friday evenings in June. Many include a kids’ zone and free popcorn.

Enjoy the music and feel free to bust out some dance moves!

Our 2024 Guide to East Bay Outdoor Summer Concerts includes family-friendly-ish performances all around the East Bay and beyond. We will be updating it all summer so stop back often.
