The Beatniks Rock Skansie Park


The Summer’s Hottest Band Plays the Waterfront this Week

Next in the lineup for Summer Sounds at Skansie concerts in the park: just Gig Harbor’s favorite rock and dance band, The Beatniks.

The crowd-pleasing Beatniks play Skansie Brothers Park on July 10 from 6:30-8 p.m. in the Tuesday night summer concert series in downtown Gig Harbor.



Harborview Drive will be closed from Pionner to Rosedale streets as it always is for the hottest band on the Summer Sounds at Skansie schedule. So, set up your lawn chair in the park earlier in the day, plan ahead for parking and be ready to enjoy a fun evening on the Gig Harbor waterfront.

Grab dinner before the concert at the popular Trolley @ the Boatyard. We’re just steps away from your lawn chair in the park.

Of course you want to grab a bite of dinner while you’re waiting for the music to start and the easiest way to do that is from The Trolley @ the Boatyard, conveniently located next to the park at Gig Harbor Marina & Boatyard.

Get Dinner @ The Trolley to Enjoy with The Beatniks

Pick up a delicious Crab and Shrimp Roll, a summer-lite Pineapple Shrimp Taco or the all-time favorite, crisp and tender beer-battered Fish & Chips. Eat at our tables by The Trolley or take your food to your place staked out in the park. There’s something for everyone on our Summer Menu.


The City of Gig Harbor, along with sponsors Harbor Hill and CHI Franciscan, are proud to present The Beatniks as part of the 16th annual of Summer Sounds at Skansie concert series at Skansie Brothers Park, 3207 Harborview Drive, along the waterfront.


Enjoy being on the Gig Harbor waterfront with The Beatniks concert in Skansie Brothers Park on July 10.
