About SummerStage

City Parks Foundation is delighted to present the 2018 season of SummerStage, New York’s largest free outdoor performing arts festival.  New York is the quintessential global city, and the place we have been proud to call home for more than three decades. SummerStage brings the best music from around the world to New York’s many and varied communities, using local neighborhood parks as gathering spaces in which to experience world class culture. From iconic performers to the latest up-and-coming artist, we present everything from indie to Afrobeat, Latin trap to soul, reggae to contemporary dance, fado to EDM, and everything in between. Join us for more than 100 shows in 18 neighborhood parks this summer.  Come watch a legendary artist or discover the performer you’ll love next!
