The music’s gonna move you

Warm weather and long days lend themselves to live music and El Dorado Hills delivers with two popular (and free!) concert series.

The El Dorado Hills Community Services District’s Summer Concerts at Community Park and El Dorado Hills Town Center’s Live on the Boulevard concerts keep residents entertained all summer long with great tribute bands, local artists and more. Both venues are family friendly.
