2023 Bryant Park Picnic Performances Calendar

Every week from June through Mid September

Bryant Park, 40th – 42nd Street between 5th and 6th Avenues

Hey, are you looking for some fun and free things to do this summer? Then you should check out Bryant Park Picnic Performances, a festival that brings you the best of New York’s arts and culture. Every week from June to August 2023, you can catch awesome shows by top-notch artists and institutions, like New York City Opera, Carnegie Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Ailey, and more. No matter what kind of music or dance you like, you’ll find something to make you smile at this festival.

The best part is, you don’t need a ticket or a reservation to join the party. Just head on over to the park where staff will be lending out free picnic blankets and a bistro chairs. Or heck, you can bring your own if you like. You can also munch on some yummy food and drink from local vendors, or pack your own snacks. And if you can’t make it to the park, no problem. You can still watch the shows online via livestream. Either way, you’ll have a blast enjoying the arts in the middle of the city.

Have a look at the schedule of the shows on this page as furnished by the official site here… As well, there’s the accompanying downloadable brochure which details all that’s going on.
