How to enjoy the summer concerts
Please do not leave belonging unattended before 4:00pm or they will be confiscated and you will lose your spot.
The Seal Beach Summer Concerts at the pier is an annual event held each year at Eisenhauer Park at the base of the Seal Beach Pier.
Concerts are on Wednesday evenings from 6pm-8pm. They typically start after the 4th of July and go through July and August until the school year begins. The breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean and the Seal Beach Pier provides the perfect backdrop for the bands.
Bring your blankets, lawn chairs, dancing shoes and picnics, then sit back and relax to the sounds of summer! Seating is first come, first served! Concerts in the Park are free and well attended; early arrival to obtain prime lawn seating is encouraged. Use low backed chairs to minimize visibility issues behind you. Umbrellas must come down 10 minutes prior to the start of the concerts. Be courteous to others. No smoking in the park. Watch your children, keep them off the stage and the stage apron. Climbing the trees in the park is not permitted. Place your trash in the bins throughout the park.
There are two sides of the park. Facing the ocean, you’ll find the stage to be on the left side of the park. The grass area on this side often fills up quicker, so patrons should plan on arriving earlier to secure spots on this side of the park. On the right side, there is a speaker for concert goers to enjoy the live music, but it is often a little more spaced out and you will often find children and dogs playing in between the blankets.
Chamber staff and volunteers are not responsible for unattended chairs blankets and other picnic items. Please do not remove items (chairs, blankets, etc.) that do not belong to you. A representative from the Seal Beach Chamber of Commerce is available for assistance when needed
