    Look for silent film nights accompanied by innovative live music or spoken word performances. Pack a picnic or buy food from local, on-site vendors like the Farm on Adderley. Read more

    Dont go inside. Blanket, wine, and people watching. That's the move.

  • Fodor's Travel

    Since its founding in 1979, more than 2,000 musical acts have have performed at the Prospect Park Bandshell, which draws 250,000 people each summer to watch.

    You have to go to at least one of these every summer.

    Amazing spot, and great free shows. Seats are a nice idea, but if it's a popular act everyone will crowd near the stage, and you will probably have to give up your seat if you want to see anything.

    A great place to being a picnic and catch a show or outdoor movie.

  • Marc M.

    Ridiculously good sound for an outdoor venue, and the weirdos who come out of the woodwork are as entertaining to watch as the acts on stage.

    Marc Mayer · June 21
  • Cole K.

    Arrive early to stake out a picnic spot on the lawn. Bring blankets, food, and whatever else you need to have a great night with music and friends.

    Be prepared to deal with a lack of organization and a lot of snotty families. Headphones required while you wait.

    Go early when gates open to avoid the line that extends outside of the park. Otherwise bring a blanket and snacks and lounge right outside of the event space, skipping said line.
