Channel Island Harbor’s Free Concerts by the Sea Summer Series Will Return

After being cancelled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, planning is underway to bring back the Channel Islands Harbor’s free Concerts by the Sea Summer Concert Series.

The concert series is hosted by the Channel Islands Harbor Foundation in coordination with the Ventura County Harbor Department.

“As more vaccinations are being administered and the impacts of the coronavirus continue to lessen, we believe the timing is right to bring back the summer series,” said Mark Sandoval, Harbor Department Director. “Each concert is held outdoors at Peninsula Park, which makes it the perfect venue to practice physical distancing while enjoying our beautiful marine environment.”

The series is held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. each Saturday from July 10 to August 28 (2021) at Peninsula Park.

Check out the 2021 lineup:
