SummerStage, a program of City Parks Foundation, presents performances of outstanding artistic quality, free of charge, to serve the diverse communities of NYC.
This beloved outdoor venue hosts (mostly) free shows, from pop musicians to dance troupes. Tip: Don't want to battle crowds? Park yourself on the lawn bordering SummerStage to enjoy the music.
SummerStage spans all five boroughs, provides free, all-ages, rain or shine cultural stimuli, and is one of the reasons why we <3 NY.
Be the first to raise your lighter – be a leader, not a follower. #DontBlowIt
Always a great place for a show
Nothing beats seeing a summer concert on a nice night in Central Park. Most of the shows are free here, but even when tickets need to be purchased, it's totally worth it. Get here early!
