Enjoy another season of free concerts at the East Bay Regional Park District's Crab Cove in Alameda. Each year these free concerts are presented by the West Alameda Business Association and the Park District. They occur on the second Fridays of June and July from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on the lawn of the Crab Cove Visitor Center at 1252 McKay Avenue in West Alameda.
The first concert in the 2011 series is on June 10 and features "Johnny Vegas," who will entertain with music from the 60s, 70s, and 80s. Be ready to rock and roll!
The second concert, on July 8, brings the return of "Foreverland," the 14-piece San Francisco-based Michael Jackson tribute band that filled the Cove to capacity last year. They are terrific!
The previously scheduled August 12 concert has been canceled.
Concerts at the Cove is an Alameda summer tradition, with people spreading picnic blankets on the lawn, listening to the music, and dancing when the spirit moves them. Premium Drake's beer, Rock Wall, and R&B wine and food from West Alameda businesses will be on sale throughout the event. No outside alcohol is allowed at the events.
The Crab Cove Visitor Center will be open until 8 p.m. on each concert night, offering organized activities for families and children. Free parking is available at the adjacent Crown Memorial State Beach and at parking lots at Santa Clara at Webster, and Taylor at Webster. Free valet bicycle parking will be available from Bike Alameda at the concert site.
