What to Expect at a Pops Series Concert
Pops Series at the Long Beach Arena. Parking at the Convention Center is $20 per vehicle. The Center’s parking attendants direct patrons to the best available parking space. If applicable, state if handicapped parking is needed to the first available attendant.
The Pops Series is a fun and friendly way to enjoy an entertaining night out. There are two ways to experience the Pops—either at a table of up to 10 people on the Arena floor, or from the upstairs loge in a theater-style seat. If you choose a table, tickets are assigned to individual tables but seating at the table is open seating.
The concert itself starts at 8:00 PM, but the doors open at 6:30 PM for picnicking. Concerts last approximately 1.5 to 2 hrs. Patrons are encouraged to come early and bring a picnic dinner and favorite libations! If you would prefer, light concessions are available at the Arena (sandwiches, snacks, full beverage service). Boxed and warm-plate catering brought to your table options are also available.
Non-factory sealed beverages are prohibited from the Long Beach Arena. For a full list of prohibited items click here.
Pops is a great place to network, visit friends, or make new ones. The orchestra presents mostly familiar tunes, with an emphasis on popular classics of all genres—classic rock, jazz, Broadway, light classics, and features talented guest artists. Each show is unique, but we guarantee that each will be enjoyable!
The audience is relaxed and often on their feet. Dress comfortably, or align with the theme. Dancing shoes are always encouraged. There are two dance floors to be enjoyed by all, located at each side of the stage. We consider each concert to be a party. Just make sure you have a safe trip home!
