Maybe you know Irvine Regional Park because your little ones love the train that choo-chooses right there, or Mile Square Regional Park, which has long hosted a free fishing tournament.

OC Parks family favorite places wear many hats, in short, depending on the time of year, the weather, and the type of outdoor activities people are looking for.

And in summer ? These activities focus on films of the most free assortment, as well as sublime live sounds.

It is no wonder that the OC Parks served as pop-up concert halls and outdoor cinemas for several years, and several venues will once again welcome moviegoers during summer 22, as well as live music lovers.

For both OC Parks Summer Concert Series and OC Parks Sunset Cinema return, with free treats, sweet evening scenes, and plenty to do for adults and families looking for an uplifting night out.

The concert series will include ten shows, with hallowed headliners leading the way in rock and fun. Ozomatli, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, The Aquabats and other acclaimed artists are on the summer rollout, which begins June 23 at Craig Regional Park.

Ozomatli, by the way, is the first group, and all the concerts? They will take place on Thursday nights, with the final event scheduled for August 25 at Bluff Park in Salt Creek Beach (The New Respects will be featured).

Friday nights belong to the movies, with “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” serving as the first cinematic treat of the season.

You’ll want to shop around June 17 for all the action-comedy fun, which will sparkle on an outdoor screen at Craig Regional Park.

Craig Regional Park will be where to see the first films, but other regional destinations will act as pop-up theaters, including Yorba Regional Park and Laguna Niguel Regional Park.

“Orange County and OC Parks are thrilled to deliver another year of exceptional entertainment to the community,” said Doug Chaffee, chairman of the Orange County Board of Supervisors.

“Enjoying a free concert or movie with friends and family is a great opportunity for visitors of all ages to experience our parks across the county.”

Strengthen the pure spirit of happy free-study? Parking will also be free.

Show up with funds if you want to snack and/or sip; food and beverages will be available for purchase at all shows and screenings.
