This is your place to BE this summer

CELEBRATE new commissions for the first time

On opening night of Summer for the City, RuPaul's Drag Race stars Sapphira Cristál and Monét X Change show off their classical training for an extravaganza of drag and opera! Nona Hendryx pushes the boundaries of art and technology, combining the physical and digital worlds in The Dream Machine Experience. In July, the Festival Orchestra of Lincoln Center performs the North American premiere of Huang Ruo’s City of Floating Sounds. Bring on the laughs as the clever, big-hearted stylings of musical theater maestro Ethan Lipton & His Orchestra are elevated for the first time by a full orchestra on June 28. Or, celebrate the Queens of Hip-Hop with an immersive night of orchestral music, DJs, and dance.

PARTICIPATE at the intersection of arts and civic engagement

Join us for our Civic Saturdays performance series, designed to unite friends and strangers in the spirit of shared community. On July 6, we present Anthem to US, the culmination of a monthslong collaborative effort to create a contemporary anthem echoing our collective hopes, struggles, and histories. In August, we honor the centenary of the iconic author, social critic, and culture changer James Baldwin. Also that month, pop culture meets activism with the Ruidosa Fest, the Latine-led international feminist platform, with a full day of lectures, live music, and a late-night silent disco.

SING and DANCE with the return of long-time favorites

NYC's largest outdoor dance floor with a now-iconic 10-foot disco ball shines bright as the centerpiece of Summer for the City with FREE social dance nights and silent discos every week. The Wedding: New York's Biggest Day also returns for the third year, inviting hundreds of couples to celebrate love. Free family shows for all ages, including storytimes, Big Umbrella Day, and dance workshops are offered all summer long. Plus, much-loved performances—globalFEST, a Juneteenth Celebration, BAAND Together, Deaf Broadway, La Casita, and so much more—come back for an encore!
