At City Parks Foundation, we are dedicated to invigorating and transforming parks into dynamic, vibrant centers of urban life through sports, arts, community building and education programs for all New Yorkers. Our programs — located in more than 400 parks, recreation centers and public schools across New York City — reach more than 310,000 people each year. Our ethos is simple: thriving parks mean thriving communities.
Capital One City Parks Foundation SummerStage is thrilled to announce its return to live, in-person performances this summer. Pending adjustments to current NYC restrictions, free music and dance performances will return to Rumsey Playfield in Central Park this summer and performances will also be held in Harlem’s Marcus Garvey Park/Richard Rodgers Amphitheater.
The Capital One City Parks Foundation SummerStage Anywhere digital series is excited to announce a continuation of weekly digital performances in 2021 on SummerStageAnwhere.org. The series will debut on January 15th with a performance commemorating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday.
