Celebrating 36 years of entertainment! Concerts in the Grove is a fresh alternative for entertaining your friends, family and business associates for a fun and lively evening of great entertainment in an outdoor setting. Past concertgoers know the four Saturday night series as a casual, fun and lively evening of great entertainment in an outdoor setting. Our concert series sells out quickly, so we encourage you to purchase your tickets early to get the best tables. Bring your favorite picnic dinners to enjoy before the performances, then listen and dance to unique bands under the stars. For your convenience, alcoholic beverages* will be available for purchase at concessions.
A popular Concerts in the Grove pastime is the raffle drawing for donated gifts from local merchants. Just a few of the past prizes have included: accommodations at fine hotels, gift certificates to acclaimed restaurants, wine tastings and tickets to Musical Theatre West and the Hollywood Bowl.
All proceeds from Concerts in the Grove help to finance the campus grants program and programs supporting student excellence.
