Safely Celebrate Summertime With The Irvine Summer Drive-In Series

Orange County is bringing back one of America’s favorite pastimes this summer with a fun twist to their traditional events. Spend your summer nights under the stars with movies and concerts in the park during the Irvine Summer Drive-In Series, each Saturday in August at the Orange County Great Park

Pack the Yeti cooler with your favorite drinks and snacks, or plan to purchase treats from gourmet food trucks, grab some pillows and blankets, and get ready to safely enjoy your summer as a community! Scroll through our blog to see the upcoming summer concert and movie schedule for the Irvine Summer Drive-In Series.

Space for this special event series is limited, and guests are required to register online in advance. No need to worry about the price, because admission is free! However, due to the limited space available, these events are only open to Irvine residents. Tickets will be available at yourirvine.org, starting Wednesday, July 1st!

Pick the perfect spot to park your car and roll the windows down to listen through amplified sound or tune-in from the car radio via a special FM station posted for the events. The Movie Gates open at 6:45 PM and the movie will begin after sunset. The drive-in will be set up in Parking Lot 2 at the Orange County Great Park. For August Concert nights, the Gates open at 4:30 PM and the music starts at 5:30 PM!

To help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the City of Irvine has taken precautionary measures and modified recreational programming for the summer. The Summer Drive-In Series is modified to bring the community together while safely following social distance guidelines.
