See yourself at Lincoln Center

Celebrate the rich cultural traditions of New York City

Lincoln Center celebrates the next 50 years of artistry, spirit, and history of Hip-Hop in 2024 with Beats, Rhymes & Sights—a series of can't-miss concerts, must-see documentary and narrative film screenings, and one-of-a-kind live conversations. This spring, profoundly versatile multimedia artist Maylee Todd curates and hosts an extraordinary series of events titled Women and Nonbinary Artists in Tech from Jan–May. Or, join us on the dance floor all year long at the Atrium, where top-notch orchestras and major artists in the fields of salsa, Latin jazz, merengue, bachata, boogaloo, and much more, light up the city with our free ¡VAYA! series.

Come as you are to welcoming spaces and artistic events

Lincoln Center is committed to integrating access needs in the creative process and creating a space where everyone feels welcome. Year-round, we invite kids, teens, and families to discover a love for the arts with dynamic events designed specifically for babies/toddlers, kids of all ages, and neurodivergent audiences and their families. Our free legacy programs return for the spring season: Lincoln Center Moments, designed for those with dementia and their caregivers; and Passport to the Arts, bringing live performances from across campus to children, teens, and adults with disabilities.
