Lamorinda Summer Fun

Beat the blues this summer with some free weekly community events right here in Lamorinda. Whether it’s an outdoor family movie night, weekend farmer’s market, or midweek food trucks and music in the park – there’s something here for everyone. So, mark your calendars, grab your family and friends, and get ready to relax and have some fun while you enjoy these community events.

MUSIC:
Free outdoor summer concerts have long been an American tradition. For both young and old alike, music acts as a catalyst to bring family, friends, and community together. Bring a blanket, some lawn chairs, and a picnic (or enjoy food from local restaurants or vendors). And remember, don’t just sit there … get up and dance.
