About SummerStage
SummerStage is an outdoor festival of the arts held each year at Rumsey Playfield in Central Park. Performances are mostly free, with the exception of a few big name benefit concerts that help fund the free SummerStage programming. SummerStage was founded in 1986 and recently expanded to hold events not only in Central Park, but also in each of the five boroughs of New York City.
