Residents and visitors alike flock to the Palm Desert Civic Center Park every Thursday evening in May and October for the City's free Concerts in the Park. Held on the terraced lawn of the Civic Center Park Amphitheater, music lovers can look forward to diverse musical offerings that may range from reggae to R&B, and from country to indie.

The full schedule promises to continue to delight fans throughout the rest of the month:
- May 3: Ambrosia

- May 17: Dead Winter Carpenters, Americana/Roots/Bluegrass
- May 24: The Blue Breeze Band, Motown and R&B
