Top NYC Things to Do
Celebrating NYC Music Makers and open to all.
Our mission is ambitious, inclusive, adventurous and fun, and we accomplish it by producing two annual citywide celebrations: our flagship festival, Make Music New York, held each summer solstice on June 21st—the longest day of the year—and Make Music Winter, a complimentary series of participatory musical parades held each winter solstice on December 21st—the longest night of the year. All of the performances take place annually on June 21st, the first day of summer and longest day of the year. From ten in the morning to ten at night, every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion — pours onto streets, sidewalks, parks and plazas to share their music with friends, neighbors, and strangers. Thousands of amateur musicians take the opportunity to play in public spaces, often for the biggest crowds of their lives. Professional musicians perform for new audiences, who come out from under their headphones to hear unfamiliar groups risk-free. And everyone is invited to sing or play along and enjoy the first day of summer in a spirit of celebration.
Over 1,000 free and participatory concerts each year.

The Phantom of the Opera. Jersey Boys. Dear Evan Hansen. Fill your trip with events to remember. If it is your first trip, and you would like to see the Statue of Liberty , there are multiple options. You can go to the Liberty Island where the Statue is, but be prepared to spend a lot of time waiting in line to get to the cruise.
