Summer Concerts In The Parks Line-Ups Roll Out For 2017

We pay a hefty sunshine tax in our rents, sales taxes, and general cost of living here in San Diego, but that's all the more reason to love the free events offered every summer. Besides amazing street fairs like Adams Avenue Street Fair, Festival of Arts in North ParkFiesta del Sol, (to name just a few), we also get a ton of "Concerts In The Park".  Many of San Diego's parks have already rolled out their summer series, and I'll do my best to update the one who haven't when they finally get around to it. Every year I fail to include these in my listings because they're a total pain in the ass to hunt down, but I'm an insomniac, so this year I've at least put this together. Note: Street Fairs and other annual events can be found here. Let me know if I missed anything!! (Find them all after the jump.
