They aren’t yet on the City’s online Event Calendar, but Summer Concerts will return to Cypress this year.

At the most recent regular meeting of the Cypress City Council, Cameron Harding, the Director of the City’s Recreation & Community Services Department, was happy to report that planning is well along for the City to hold six concerts this summer.

Changes will be forced by COVID-19.

First, the concerts will be held on Fridays.

Second, the concert location will move from the Civic Center Green to a parking lot at Cypress College. (Exactly which parking lot is currently under negotiation.)

Third, the concert scheduled for July 2 will be followed by fireworks, effectively combining a Summer Concert with the City’s Salute to America.

Fourth, reservations will be required. Guests will drive in and claim two parking spaces — one for the car, and one for allowing room for modest tailgating. Guest must stay within their assigned space. Alas, line dancing will have to be postponed for a later summer.

Watch for further announcements on dates, which bands to expect, and how to make your reservation!

      Edgardo,

      Thank you for reading Orange County Breeze, and for taking the time to comment on this article.

      While we applaud your enthusiasm for the Cypress Summer Concerts, we are unable to reserve spaces. You will need to do that through the City of Cypress website or app, once reservations become available.

      Again, thank you for reading Orange County Breeze.

  2. I have attended the Summer Concerts for years. It was a time to get together with friends and dance and enjoy the music. Sitting in a car and tailgating is not the same. My grandkids enjoyed dancing and playing. I know people will probably go, but I prefer the Civic Center. Hopefully, next year we can go back to NORMAL.

      I suspect that many people feel the same way as you do — even Cypress City Recreation staff! I know that they are champing at the bit to support in-person unrestricted events. As soon as possible, such events will return!

      Again, thank you for reading Orange County Breeze.
