Music in the Park

Music in the Park is one of the premier summer events hosted by the Town of Los Gatos. Since 1988, Music in the Park (MIP) has been a free public summer concert series held on Sunday afternoons on the Los Gatos Civic Center Lawn.

Over the years, MIP has been managed by multiple parties and for 2018 our Town Council is proud to announce that the series will be designed and hosted by the Town. 2018 will see a return to MIP’s roots with a fun mix of musical genres and a family friendly atmosphere.

Concerts will be every Sunday July 8 - August 5, 2018 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
