Concerts at The Beach

Dr. Brian Jersky


Join us for Concerts at The Beach, the CSULB Alumni Associationís
on-campus, outdoor concert series!

Pack a picnic dinner to enjoy before the concert, then listen and dance to lively bands when the sun goes down. For your convenience, alcoholic beverages* will be available for purchase at concessions.


In addition to music and dancing, you can win fabulous prizes in the door prize drawing with gifts donated by generous local businesses. Proceeds from the drawings go to the CSULB Alumni Association, which supports the success of CSULB students through programs such as Alumni Grants. A few of last year’s prizes included overnight stays at Montage Laguna Beach, tickets to events at the Hollywood Bowl, and in-home wine tasting.

*No outside alcohol is permitted at this event.
