SUMMER CONCERT ON THE GREEN – TWO CONSECUTIVE NIGHTS!
This year Summer Concert on the Green is bigger and better than ever! Instead of one night of entertainment, it’s now two nights! Buy tickets for both nights or just the night you’d like to attend.
On July 2, day 1, of Summer Concert on the Green, we’re featuring Eagles tribute band, Desperado, and Elton John tribute band, Kenny Metcalf as Elton & The Early Years Band. Gates will open at 5 p.m. and the concert is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. In addition to offering onsite parking, additional parking is available down the street at Northwoods Clubhouse with complimentary shuttle service from 4:30 – 10 p.m.
On July 3, day 2, concert goers will enjoy Journey tribute band, Evolution, and U2 tribute band, Hollywood U2. Gates will open at 5 p.m. and the concert is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. In addition to offering onsite parking, additional parking is available down the street at Northwoods Clubhouse with complimentary shuttle service from 4:30 – 10 p.m.
You may have seen some of these tribute acts in the past, but you’ll be awed by their enthusiasm, energy and the likeliness of the artists they are portraying. At every performance, audience members will be struck at first by the incredible rendition of those oh-so-familiar songs the world has come to love. Both days of Summer Concert on the Green take place at Tahoe Donner’s driving range, on a gentle slope surrounded by giant pines. Performers often say that it is one of the more beautiful and relaxed settings they have ever played. Guests can come along and enjoy the music, food and drinks in a wonderful outdoor location.
When purchasing online, consider a donation to the Tahoe Donner Giving Fund. Even a $1 donation can help fund a scholarship for a local graduate in need.
Summer Concert on the Green sells out almost every year. To ensure you have a ticket, buy in advance. In the event we do not sell out, tickets will be available the day of for $5 more per person.
Tahoe Donner’s Driving Range is located adjacent to Trout Creek Recreation Center at 12790 Northwoods Blvd., Truckee, 530-587-9400.
