 Concert series

Here's a file photo from last summer's Summer Concert Series.


With less than two weeks of school left and Memorial Day right around the corner, it is time to acknowledge and celebrate summer!

Summer is unofficially upon us and with the summer season comes one of the City’s most popular events, the Panama City Beach Parks & Recreation's Summer Concert Series.

Every Thursday night from June 6 through August 22, locals and tourists can bring their lawn chairs and quilts, kick off their shoes, bring their favorite vino and enjoy these free summer concerts which feature all genres of music. The 7-9 p.m. concerts are held at the Aaron Bessant Park Amphitheatre, 500 West Park Drive, adjacent to Pier Park.

“This is a great event that I think everyone in the City looks forward to every year. I know I do,” said Panama City Beach Mayor Mike Thomas. “Aaron Bessant Park is a great venue for outdoor concerts and thousands of people attend the series each year and seem to really enjoy it. You’re a block from the beautiful beaches and there’s usually a breeze from the Gulf.

“It’s great to see the families come out with their young children, and people of all ages, both locals and tourists attend. Thanks to our partners, we can offer this as a free event. And the music is good. There is something for every taste.”

Food and beverage vendors will be on site. The series is BYOB for wine and beer. This year we welcome the following vendors: FINNS Island Style Grub, M2M Adventures, Sharp Curbside Bistro, Smok’n Butts BBQ and Temperley’s British Eatery.
