Mizner Park Amphitheater is the place to be for live music in Boca Raton Florida this summer!

Mizner Park Amphitheater for Live Music Boca Raton

It’s going to be a music-filled summer in the City of Boca Raton. The Summer in the City concert series is back for another season of live music in Boca Raton Florida. These free concerts will take place on select Fridays in June and July at the Mizner Park Amphitheater, located at 590 Plaza Real.

There is always something fun to do in Mizner Park, a landmark plaza in Boca Raton. The options for dining and shopping are unparalleled, and the Mizner Park Amphitheater calendar provides frequent entertainment.

The state-of-the-art amphitheater can accommodate 4,200 people. It opened back in November 2002, and the City of Boca took over operations and ownership in October 2010. It serves as a social, cultural, and educational center for South County residents and draws audiences from throughout South Florida. Since its inaugural year, the amphitheater has entertained more than one million people.

I have attended numerous festivals and events at this location. It really is the perfect venue, providing ample space for vendors, food trucks, brand activations, and more.

This 9-piece band calls themselves ‘the most authentic version of the Doobie Brothers, anywhere.’ They perform live versions of the classics from Live at Wolf Trap, Live at the Beacon Theater, and Rockin’ Down the Highway collections.

Friday, July 12th: Crazy Fingers with the Symphonia Boca Raton

Crazy Fingers is South Florida’s premier Grateful Dead tribute band. They regularly play locally at popular music venues such as the Funky Biscuit in Boca and The Bamboo Room in Lake Worth. 

I’m especially looking forward to this show because they’ll be combining their musical talents with the Symphonia Boca Raton. The Symphonia is a chamber orchestra that was founded in July 2004. 

Their mission is to inspire, educate, and engage the lives of our diverse South Florida community through extraordinary musical experiences. Joining Crazy Fingers for this one-night-only event will definitely be a unique experience!

Friday, July 19th: Billy Buchanan and his Rock ‘n Soul Revue

Visit These Boca Raton Bars and Restaurants Before the Concerts

There is no shortage of places in Mizner Park where you can grab dinner and drinks before heading into the concert.

Summer in the City is sponsored by American Social, so why not check them out? Happy hour is Monday through Friday from 4-7 pm, so you’ll be able to catch those specials before the concerts! The American Social menu features American classics with a modern twist, in a fun and lively atmosphere. 

My favorite restaurants in Mizner Park are Kapow Noodle Bar, Max’s Grille, Loch Bar and Serena Pastificio.  Other options include Calaveras Cantina, Eddie V’s, Yardhouse, Villagio, Pure Green, and Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.

If you’re looking to end the night on a sweet note, check out Cieleto Artisan Pops, It’s Sugar or Sloane’s. Subculture Coffee and Starbucks are also in the plaza if you need a pre-concert pick-me-up!

The Brightline Boca station is also within walking distance of the amphitheater. This makes it super convenient for anyone from West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Aventura, Miami, and even Orlando to come listen to live music in Boca Raton Florida.
