We're so excited to welcome you back on campus for outdoor ticketed events, including Restart Stages—an outdoor performing arts center with 10 specially created outdoor performance and rehearsal spaces. Fostering a dynamic environment for artists, community organizations, and audiences, Restart Stages is a welcoming and safe place for live performances, family activities, and community service opportunities.
Lincoln Center is committed to enhancing the safety of our visitors, performers, and employees. Below are our guidelines for visitors of our campus. The safety plan and visitor guidelines are subject to change in accordance with pending city and state guidelines, rules and regulations, and other health and safety recommendations.
While our indoor concert halls remain closed, our outdoor spaces are open to the public for your enjoyment. Visiting hours may vary, as we accommodate outdoor activities for our constituents and neighbors while following governmental guidelines.
We ask our guests to adhere to the following protocols while visiting Lincoln Center’s public areas:
What We’re Doing:
What We’re Asking Visitors To Do:

This requirement applies to all ticketed events as part of Restart Stages and all other outdoor ticketed events on campus.
Guests under the age of 12 may attend events without showing a negative test result, but must be accompanied by an adult showing proof of full vaccination or negative COVID-19 test.
• The free Health Pass by CLEAR to confirm identity, vaccination status and/or negative test result. Download the free app to gain access to faster entry lanes when arriving to your event and to avoid long lines. Please click here for instructions on how to use the app.
