Now in its 17th year, Concerts at the Cove has become an institution in the City of Alameda.  Each second Friday in June, July, and August, hundreds of visitors walk or bike to Crab Cove Visitors Center to enjoy a free family friendly concert featuring one of the bay area’s best bands. The meadow area at Crab Cove with its stunning view of the San Francisco Bay is the perfect location for a summer concert.
 
This year, the music lineup will be spectacular. The Patsychords – Vocalist Margaret Belton channeled country western superstar Patsy Cline in two sold out runs of Always Patsy Cline at the Altarena Playhouse.  She returns to the stage on July 14th along with her good friend ”Louise” who will emcee. The August 11th concert will showcase The Up and Down. The band has been part of the local Alameda music scene for years. In 2015, they were awarded the Readers Choice Best Band in Alameda Magazine.
 
In addition to great music, local restaurants offer soft tacos, hot dogs, kettle corn, and other tasty treats for sale, and the Rotary Club of Alameda sells beverages.  Stop by the designated beverage area and enjoy a glass of wine from R & B Cellars, Rosenblum Cellars, and Rock Wall Wine Company. There are plenty of activities for younger family members. The Crab Cove Visitors Center stays open during the concert for families to explore the displays and learn more about the plants and animals that inhabit the area. There is a craft table for the small fries and one might even get to pet a snake or tortoise. Alameda’s own Kenny the Clown has been known to drop by and make a few balloon sculptures while local face painter extraordinaire Alana Dill will transform a little face into a tiger or fairy.
