Theatre-In-the-Round-Style “Concerts In Your Car™” Takes Over Ventura’s Summertime Entertainment Scene

After a wildly successful start, this summer’s best entertainment can be found on a unique four-sided stage with live music, Zoppé Circus and live musical theatre in partnership with Rubicon Theatre Company

Summer is in full swing, and innovation is key in a year where large public gatherings have been rendered unsafe by COVID-19. That’s where CBF Productions comes in. The inaugural “Concerts In Your Car” concert starring locally-born acclaimed rapper KYLE in June was just the first of many drive-in, socially-distanced live entertainment options rolling into the Ventura County Fairgrounds this summer.

For those in search of live music, the series will feature some of the biggest touring names across genres, as well as several stellar tribute acts with tickets starting at just $19:

  • Bruno Mars & the Hooligans (Bruno Mars Tribute Band) – July 9 at 7:30 PM
  • Randy Houser – July 11 at 8:00 PM
  • Fishbone, Ozomatli & Rey Fresco – July 18 at 8:00 PM
  • Don’t Stop Believing (Journey Tribute Band) – July 23 at 7:30 PM
  • Third Eye Blind – July 25 at 8:00 PM
  • Noise Pollution (ACDC Tribute Band) – July 30 at 7:30 PM

If family entertainment is what you need, there is an option on the calendar as well.  Concerts in Your Car will be presenting five performances of the Zoppé Family Circus. While this old-world Italian extravaganza normally takes place in an intimate 500 seat tent, it can be experienced from the comfort of one’s own car from July 31 through August 2.

CBF Productions is also excited to announce their upcoming partnership with the Rubicon Theatre Company to host a Drive-In Theatre Concert Series. Gates will open at 6:30 PM prior to each show, which is 8:00 PM, and attendees are highly encouraged to bring a picnic dinner or order from one of downtown Ventura’s many delightful restaurants (many of whom are providing curbside pickup), which are conveniently located near the fairgrounds.
