Rentals At SummerStage in Central Park


SummerStage’s flagship Central Park venue is located at Rumsey Playfield, 72nd Street and Fifth Avenue.

In 2019, our 5,500 capacity venue underwent an extensive $6 million upgrade, transforming the space into a state-of-the-art concert facility. With a location in the heart of New York’s Central Park, there are few comparable outdoor event experiences. SummerStage’s unique location and stunning setting, combined with a world class performance experience, is unmatched.
