Welcome to Things to do in Palm Springs This Weekend – which provides information and links to concerts, events, festivals, and more happening in and around the Coachella Valley. Seeing as how there are 52 weekends a year, we update this page every week (usually Tuesday, sometimes Wednesday), so check back every week (make it easy by adding a bookmark!) to see what’s going on in Palm Springs, Indio, Palm Desert, Coachella, Cathedral City, Rancho Mirage, and everywhere in between.

Things to do in Palm Springs This Weekend (4/19/19 – 4/21/19):

Coachella Weekend Two | Friday – Sunday

The festival once again dominates the weekend in the Coachella Valley.  Things are a little lighter in terms of parties and pop-ups than Weekend One, but Sunday will bring Kanye West and his “church” made out of shipping containers –  so there’s that.

Get more info on Coachella here.

Easter | Events on Saturday and Sunday

(Living Desert)

That bunny is coming and he’s bringing eggs, and brunch, and, seriously those Cadbury eggs are the best!!  Anyway, we have a full list of Easter activities (including the Easter Bunny arriving via paraglider) here.

Go Out to Dinner | All Weekend 

(Paul Bar)

I mentioned this last week, but I am going to do it again as it’s seriously a great weekend to go out to dinner.  Everyone staying at the hotels and the short-term rentals is out at the fest by then.  Combine that with our precious Snowbirds flying back north and you can pretty much have your pick of where to eat without the need for reservation with the satisfaction of knowing you are taking care of your server and local restaurant owner during what would otherwise be a slow night.

Rock Yard | Saturday

Lineup for the Rock Yard at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio

The free concert series will see a Metallica tribute on Saturday night at Fantasy Springs Casino.

Get more info here.

Desert X | 🚨 LAST WEEKEND 🚨

All good things must come to an end.  This is your last chance to check out all the cool art installations scattered from Whitewater to the Salton Sea…so do it!  Most are cool – some are weird – but most are cool.

We have a full map of where to go and much more for you here.

4/20 | Saturday

It’s a big day for the cannabis industry and there will events to celebrate at dispensaries throughout the desert.  The Leaf El Paseo is having one with tacos and churros!  There will also be a DJ at the party – which will run from noon to 4:20.

Have a great weekend!!
