Central Park SummerStage is an outdoor venue, located at Rumsey Playfield, which is right off the 5th Avenue and 69th Street entrance to Central Park. The festival runs during the months of May through September, and offers approximately 30-35 free-of-charge performing events. All SummerStage shows go on rain or shine and are only cancelled in the event of dangerous lightning during a performance.

By purchasing tickets to SummerStage Benefit Concerts, you are continuing to support over 100 free performances in parks throughout the five boroughs.

Most of the concerts throughout the summer are privately funded and may be enjoyed by the general public at no cost with the exception of some of the bigger shows on the Mainstage in the park.
