Concerts Cool Down This Summer

TJ's Corral Outdoor Concert Series

The hills are alive with the sound of music, and so is Carson Valley. Scroll down to check out these summer highlights and mark your calendars.

The Carson Valley Inn team really stepped up their musical game this year, with each concert announcement drawing a collective gasp. There’s something for the country music lover, the smooth jazz fan, and those who still rock out to the music of their youth. Tickets are available on their website and at Check-In, but whatever you do, don’t wait. With an intimate venue like TJ’s Corral (not to mention the most amazing place to witness the sunset), the tickets move fast.
