When it’s summertime we like to head outside for hiking, biking and great music. The Yosemite region is home to many great musicians with a range of musical styles for you to enjoy. If you are staying in the town of Mariposa, be sure to enjoy the Mariposa Evenings Summer Concert Series at the Mariposa Arts Park. This free series features a different band every Friday and Saturday night through August. The Arts Park is conveniently located near many great restaurants including elegant dining and family-style, so you can enjoy a fine meal before heading to the Arts Park or even get a pizza to go and enjoy it on the green listening to great music. See full schedule.
The Yosemite Music Festival, which is the largest outdoor music event of the summer, takes place at the Mariposa Fairgrounds and features more than a dozen bands. This year’s line-up includes the Atomic Sherpas, Green Machine and more. Learn more about this fun summer event.
