Here in Arizona this time of year, most of us huddle indoors in the air conditioning all day long, but when the night rolls around, we venture out of doors to enjoy a little summer fun. Your evening summer fun should include a trip to Glendale’s Summer Band Concert Series! The concert series takes place each Thursday at 8 p.m., June 2 through June 30, in the E. Lowell Rogers Amphitheatre, located at 59th Avenue and Glenn Drive. Enjoy tunes from Big Band to Broadway and beyond – so there are selections for all different musical tastes – with each week featuring a different theme. Bring your chairs, blankets and family out for free fun and an evening under the stars!
Historic Downtown Glendale's Entertainment District is actually two distinct neighborhoods!
Old Towne's brick-trimmed sidewalks and glowing gaslights lead the way to the famous eateries, antique shops and specialty stores.
Historic Catlin Court features a wonderful collection of unique boutiques and one-of-a-kind eateries. Located in mid-century bungalows, the area is surrounded by picket fences and mature shade trees.
The pedestrian friendly area spans 10 square blocks. Free covered parking is available at the Palmaire Parking Structure located at 5835 W. Palmaire Ave.
We are a must see when visiting the Phoenix area. We look forward to seeing you soon in Historic Downtown Glendale - A Real Hometown Happening!
