Presidents Welcome

Welcome to the 2021

Coronado Promenade Concert Season

Welcome Back Everyone!

We are so excited to be able to celebrate the return of our beloved summer concert series. A tradition where family and friends come together for fun, laughter and lots of dancing! Due to the pandemic we sadly had to cancel the 2020 season.

Happily, this year will allow a 12-concert series with six Coronado bands performing! The singing of the national anthem by a guest volunteer, a crowd favorite, also continues. New this year, to support our local restaurants we have established a new food drop off zone along Seventh Street for your convenience.

WE REALLY NEED YOUR HELP! The Coronado Promenade Concerts’ (CPC) is an independent 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. Please know CPC does not receive any funds from the city of Coronado. The annual budget for the usual 16 summer concert season is over $100,000 raised through donations, program ads and sponsorships.

Due to the late timing of our knowledge that there would be a concert season, the Board of Directors authorized the use of reserves to cover the costs of this year’s concerts rather than solicit ads or individual concert sponsorships. This means all of the funds we had budgeted for the Concerts in the Park 50th Anniversary next year will have been spent.

So PLEASE, when you see the Red Bucket Brigade approaching, wave them down, dig deep and show your appreciation for the value of this priceless experience. Give generously because this year we need your help more than ever.

None of this could be possible without the support of members of the Coronado City leadership:

Coronado City Council
Interim City Manager MarkOchedusko
Police Chief Chuck Kaye
Fire Chief Jim Lydon
Director of Public Service Cliff Maurer
Senior Management Analyst/Art & Culture Kelly Purvis

We couldn’t do it without them! Also, thank you to Holland’s Bicycles who donate the bike locks raffled off every Sunday.

Please make a special effort to support our local businesses! Sit back, laugh and enjoy the show.

Now Let’s Dance!

Sincerely,
Cathy Brown
President
