Summer Concerts & Movies Under the Stars

One of our favorite summertime pastimes is lounging on a blanket at a neighborhood park to enjoy a concert or movie under the stars. You’ll find many opportunities to enjoy this fun tradition throughout the Sacramento area, many just a short drive from Cyrene at Meadowlands. These outdoor concert and movie series take full advantage of the balmy summer nights, plus most of these events are free. So pack a picnic, bring your blanket, and celebrate summer with music and movies under the stars.
