Basalt Summer Concert Series

A long-standing Basalt tradition, the Basalt Chamber of Commerce’s Summer Concert Series has been showcasing a wide variety of musical genres with performances across town for over a decade.

Concerts are held during the summer on eight Wednesday evenings, from 6–8 p.m., in either Triangle Park and in Lions Park. Bring your blanket and picnic baskets and enjoy free live music all summer long. Be sure to support our area businesses by stopping in for dinner or happy hour.

Food & Beverage

The concert series is the perfect chance to dine al fresco while listening to live music. Close to each venue are several local restaurants and bars, so we encourage you to dine-in on the patios, or if you prefer, get dinner to go and have a picnic on the grass. Water will be at every concert. Additional food options will be available during the concerts at Lions Park. NOTE: These are family-friendly, alcohol-free events

Parking

As these are popular community events, parking can be limited. It is highly recommended that concertgoers take advantage of walking, biking (including using WE-cycle), using public transit (RFTA) as well as area Park and Rides lots for a more positive experience.
