What's better than a spectacular, outdoor, family-friendly, FREE music performance? A whole season of free outdoor concerts! We're rounding up all the free concerts in June, July, and August, to keep the kids grooving all summer.

There are free concert series for kids in parks, playgrounds, piers, and plazas across the five boroughs, so scroll, click, and set reminders with your favorites. With top family bands playing annual series like Madison Square Kids and Hudson RiverKids, you're sure to find something the whole family can shake a tail feather to.

We've also included outdoor concert series like Celebrate Brooklyn! and the Riverside Concert Series. These concerts are mostly in the evenings and the music is more adult-oriented, but kids are always welcome.
