Burton Chase Park Symphonic Thursdays & Pop Saturdays
Live music is in the air this summer in Marina del Rey, CA, as it has free concerts on select Thursdays and Saturdays.
The shows take place at a small stage in Burton Chase Park, which is right up against the water. They take place starting at 7 p.m., and last for about two hours and are very casual.
Bring a blanket or beach chair and make a picnic of it. You can bring your own food and drinks but note that open containers of alcohol are not allowed. (So if you want a little wine or something, be discreet!)
Most people sit on a small grassy area which has a hump rather than a hill and they are seldom super crowded, so there’s always a spot to plop down for the evening. If you’re visiting or new to Los Angeles, note that it can get cool and even chilly at night so bring a sweatshirt or jacket.
The park is right on the water, so you can also listen while walking around this part of the marina. There is free parking in grass lots on Mindanao Way.
There’s two types of music, Symphonic Thursdays & Pop Saturdays, and here’s the lineup; note they are not every week so check the dates here on PubClub.com for perfect planning.
