Summer Festivals and Street Fairs for Long Island Families

Fairs and festivals abound on Long Island during the summer months, and that’s great news for families. These outdoor celebrations offer the perfect opportunity for old-fashioned family fun. Some of our picks are annual events, others are just getting started, and some transform our favorite walkable main streets into no-cars-allowed parties that fill the streets.

You'll even find some cool extras, from live music to fireworks to liven up the night. Find more ways to celebrate the season in our Summer Fun Guide.

As always, if an event piques your interest, click through to our listing for all the details, including addresses and times. And, keep in mind: On Long Island, especially now, really cool things to do with kids often book up quickly, so register or buy your tickets ASAP.
