Summer concerts start June 24

THE FENIANS, an Irish folk and rock music band, will perform on July 8 at Eastgate Park in Garden Grove.

Good music and a great price: free.

Summertime in Garden Grove means it’s free Summer Concert Series time, and this year’s line-up offers genres sure to please every music lover in the family. The Garden Grove Community Foundation will host a total of four concerts for the series, on Thursday evenings. Two are being staged at Eastgate Park, located at 12001 St. Mark Street, on June 24 and July 8, and two at Garden Grove Park, located at 9301 Westminster Boulevard, on July 22 and Aug. 5. All four concerts are from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The first concert will have classic rock fans dancing for joy, as the wildly-popular band, The Answer, returns to Garden Grove’s Eastgate Park, on June 24. Irish folk music, courtesy of fan favorites, The Fenians, will bring the noise and Celtic culture to Eastgate Park on July 8.

Garden Grove Park will host the next two concerts in the series, beginning on July 22, with Anything for Salinas. This tribute band brings the song catalogue of the Queen of Tejano, Selena, to life. The series closes out on Aug. 5, with new wave tunes filling the air, featuring Lynda Tran Dai, known as the Vietnamese Madonna.

C & M Ohana will be selling kettle corn, ice cream, and lemonade, and food trucks will be on site offering specialty menus.

Attendees are asked to follow current COVID-19 safety precautions, which will be posted. Also, for the safety and enjoyment of all, no canopies, golf carts or alcohol is permitted in both parks.
