Central Park SummerStage

Summer Stage is one of New York's greatest institutions, Central Park filling up every summer with music, theatre, opera, and dance. There's a different performance every Saturday and Sunday afternoon, and usually Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday evenings. Most are free.
Some famous performers and musicians grace the stage in Central Park and the atmosphere at the concerts is one of the great joys of a New York City summer. Bring a picnic if you don't want to pay for overpriced beer and food and get in early for a good spot. Visit the official website for a list of events.
