Summer evenings in Marin are a great time of the year. More than just being able to enjoy the beautiful weather outdoors in your own backyard, you can take advantage of the myriad of outdoor evening events held throughout the Summer throughout the county. Two weeks ago, I wrote about Ross’s Marin Art & Garden Center Summer Concert Series, last week it was Larkspur’s Marin Country Mart Movies on the Green Series, yesterday it was Mill Valley’s Comedy Night in the Plaza, and today it is San Rafael’s Jewish Community Center’s Summer Nights Music Festival. Whew! And I’m not done yet.
The JCC is hosting five outstanding concerts this Summer, and the first one is next week on Saturday, July 9th. It’s a bluegrass music theme, complemented by Roadhouse BBQ dinners to purchase on-site. The bands will be the Bay Area’s own Hot Buttered Rum and San Francisco’s Jugtown Pirates. For the full list of the Summer series, click here.
A very cool thing the JCC is doing for this first festival is inviting any full-time teacher in Marin a free ticket to the event, as a show of appreciation for the work teachers do. Click here for instructions on how to get a free ticket.
