2021 Free Summer Concerts

The 2021 season of SummerStage, New York’s largest free performing arts festival, (in a typical year) brings over 100 free performances to 16 parks throughout the 5 boroughs every May through September.

In 2021, admittance will require a free ticket, proof of vaccine and/or negative COVID test, and health screening – such as a questionnaire and temperature checks. All in-person performances will be live-streamed on SummerStageAnywhere.org, rights permitting.

With performances ranging from American pop, Latin and world music to dance, spoken word and theater, SummerStage brings a huge summer arts festival to New York City’s landscape.
