A BIG Thank You to our returning Producer Sponsor Bradley Real Estate 

Sausalito’s summertime Jazz & Blues by the Bay concerts in Gabrielson Park in downtown Sausalito have become a legendary local favorite. Breathtaking views of Angel Island, San Francisco and the Bay provide the backdrop for this weekly celebration at Gabrielson Park in downtown Sausalito. Concerts are every Friday all summer long, June through August from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. Grass seating is free, so come out early to get a seat. Parking is close by and there is special parking available for $5, and all funds go to benefit our 4th of July Fireworks show.
