August 16 and September 27
Green Flash Concert series, which runs through September 27, combines live music with panoramic ocean views on the Birch Aquarium’s stunning outdoor Tide-Pool Plaza. Presented in partnership with 101.5 KGB, Star 94.1, Belly Up Entertainment, and Subaru, these unique monthly concerts are held from 5:30 to 9 pm for music lovers who are 21 and older.
Milo Greene performs on August 16. The final concert of the season takes place on September 27 and features headlining artists Pine Mountain Logs and Venice. Savory bites, craft beers, and wines are also available for purchase. Keep an eye out for a real “green flash,” a rare optical phenomenon caused by refraction of light as the sun sets on the horizon.
All concerts are general admission and standing room only. Admission includes the concert, entrance to all aquarium exhibits, and parking. Proceeds from the event support exhibits and educational programming at Birch Aquarium at Scripps.
