Concerts at the Cove Series

The 14th Annual Concerts at the Cove Series will be on the second Friday night in June, July, and August offering the free concerts at Crab Cove. Summer weather, good music, family fun alongside a picturesque bay in the early evening hours. Bring lawn chairs, blankets, and jackets for the fierce bay breezes.

The Lineups:

  • June 14th Fleetwood Mask
  • July 12th The Bob Claire Orchestra
  • August 9th Battle of the Bands

Presented by Alameda Landing with Bear Lincoln, Rudolph and Soulstice performing Pre-concert entertainment at Crab Cove Visitor Center and food sales begin at 4:30 p.m., with bands performing from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

On tap: family-friendly entertainment, music, food and beverages. No alcohol, please. Dancing is part of the fun. Plus, Crab Cove Visitor Center at 1252 McKay Avenue will be open during the concerts and will provide activities that will keep youngsters from 3 to 12 occupied as the music plays, with nature crafts on the deck, a scavenger hunt inside and fish feeding at the five aquariums.

Once again it’s that time of year to walk, bike or run to Crab Cove and catch one of the free Concerts at the Cove! The Concerts at the Cove Series is sponsored and produced by the Rotary Club of Alameda, East Bay Regional Park District, and the Regional Parks Foundation. Proceeds go to scholarships for Alameda students and grants to Alameda-based nonprofit organizations.
