Where to go for live music outdoors in Coeur d’Alene and surrounding areas

Summer means being outdoors as much as possible, including for summer concerts, which occur all over the place in Coeur d’Alene.
With a view to Tubbs Hill, the lake and McEuen Park Coeur d’Alene Public Library is the place for MUSIC MONDAYS. This free outdoor concert series from 6-7:30 pm resumes July 22 with the Celtic and folk sounds of Deep Roots and continues through early September.
On Wednesdays nearby, LIVE AFTER 5 takes place in McEuen Park. Grab a beverage or bite to eat from participating food trucks and spend an early summer evening listening to Dreamin Wild (July 17), Jam Shack (Aug. 14) and more. New this year is a similar series Thursday night at Tullamore Park in Post Falls ( 5-8:30 pm).
Also downtown, the free COEUR D’ALENE CITY PARK CONCERT SERIES happens every Sunday from 1-4 pm in City Park. Bring a blanket or chair, some snacks, and sit back under the trees to enjoy performances by Soul Proprietor (July 14), the Ryan Larsen Band (July 21), Swing Street Band (July 28) and more through Sept. 15.
The RIVERSTONE PARK SUMMER CONCERT SERIES takes place in the plaza at Riverstone (1805 Tilford Ln.) every Thursday until end of August. Benefitting Coeur d’Alene’s Arts and Culture Alliance, the series features a range of musical stylings: Sway Wild’s folk-rock (July 11); North Point Jazz (July 18), doo wop to French pop music from Erin Hall (July 25); showtunes from Coeur d’Alene Summer Theater and the Weddle Twins (Aug. 1) and more. Seating is available on the concrete steps or bring a blanket for the lawn.
If you haven’t yet discovered the lake’s newest hot spot, THE BUOY BAR AND GRILL, you’re missing out. Nestled between the Coeur d’Alene Resort and Tubb’s hill, you won’t find better lake views. Catch the sunset and enjoy live music, cold beer and great company every Friday night from 6-9 pm. Everyone’s welcome, from your kids to your fur babies.
Luscious lake views are also on display during the WEEKLY HAPPY HOUR on the Resort’s floating boardwalk at the SIDE TIE BAR. You’ll find live music every Saturday from 4-7 pm from Memorial Day to Labor Day at this unique lakeside venue.
Take the summer concert experience up a notch with the Coeur d’Alene Resort’s BANDS ON BOATS cruise and concert series for the 21-and-over crowd. Tickets are $26.50 for the 90-minute cruise and sell out quickly, but there’s room left for August events like Too Slim and the Taildraggers (Aug. 2). New this year, the Resort is also presenting the LIVE AT THE LAKE Summer Concert series, held at the stunning Hagadone event center on the golf course. The first performer was Grammy Award winner, Bryan White. Stay tuned for the announcement of the next big artist.
Where else can you hear live music this summer? In HARRISON every Saturday from 2-5 pm at the City Park, and in HAYDEN on Thursdays in McIntire Family Park through the end of August with the popular rock ’n’ roll band Rhythm Dawgs (July 18).
