Friday Night Concerts

The 2015 Friday Night Concert season kicked-off May 8th and is off to a great start!  (See below for complete season schedule). 


A little bit about the Friday Night Concert Series...

Los Caballitos 20142015 will be our 38th season of Friday Night Concerts in Downtown Chico...truly remarkable! The concerts, a cherished summertime traditon, are held weekly (May 8 - Sept. 11) and are widely considered Chico's best place to hear live, local music for free. Located in City Plaza, in the heart of downtown, the concerts offer entertainment to suit every musical preference - styles range from blues to swing and from Classic rock to reggae.  All bands invited to perform are locally based.
