What Is There To Do In Walnut Creek?
Well? It is the heart of summer time, so what is there to do around town? Plenty! There is always something going on in our little town! We went to a couple resources, and pulled together a list of what is going on in town over the month of August 2016.
So…if you are still reading catch the list below!
The Weekly Good Times in Walnut Creek
Every Tuesday, Off The Grid heads down to where McDonald’s used to be on California Boulevard. The food trucks set up shop in the parking lot, and it is great fun for the whole family. Often, you can find some live music that will get both you and the kiddos twistin’ and turnin’.

More Fun Stuff In Walnut Creek
On Wednesday August 3rd, you can head to Downtown Walnut Creek and have fun at First Wednesdays! The theme this time around will be “Summer Jam Fest,” which you know, sounds awesome! This is a one of a kind street festival that includes live music, shopping, arts and crafts, and more! Another great event to have family fun in Walnut Creek! Get more info here: First Wednesdays, Walnut Creek.
Thursday August 4th is going to bring us another round of the Concert Series at Broadway Plaza! August 4, 2016 will feature Petty Theft…hmm…can you guess what songs this band will play? Sounds good to me! This event is weekly throughout August, so make sure to catch other great bands on August 11, 18, and 25. ? More info here: Broadway Plaza Concert Series.
Here’s a great idea for a couple’s evening out on Saturday August 6, 2016. Check out the Jazz Series at the Lesher Center in Downtown Walnut Creek. Warren Vache will be featured this week! More info: Jazz Series At Lesher Center (With more music on August 20 and 27).
Friday August 19th is going to be another “Movies Under The Stars” evening at Civic Park! What a wonderful way for the family to enjoy some cinema outside in the fresh air as the stars come out. This month will feature the movie “Aladdin,” slated to start at dusk. The Last Minute Band will provide live music starting at 7pm. Check here for more details: Walnut Creek Movies Under The Stars
Saturday August 13th features a twilight hike at Mount Diablo! I don’t know about you, but with the warm summers we get…a twilight hike sounds like the perfect idea. Take a brisk, mile long hike to check out some nighttime critters here in our area. Meet at the Mitchell Canyon Trailhead in Clayton at 6:30PM. Get the particular details (like car fee) here: Mount Diablo Twilight Hike
