Free Outdoor Summer Family Concerts in Westchester and the Hudson Valley

Summer nights are prime for fun, with longer daylight, no homework, and mild temperatures. What better way to relax and savor the season than at an outdoor concert? Many parks and other venues in Westchester and the Hudson Valley host FREE performances, and below we’ve rounded up a smattering for your social calendar. 

Whether you’re down for a rock cover band, jazz, Afro-Peruvian, Mariachi music, or kid-bop, there’s something for every taste. Many offer food trucks or the option of ordering from local restaurants for the added perk of a meal out (and supporting local businesses).

Grab a blanket and your dancing shoes and get ready for summer entertainment. For more family fun, bookmark our Event Calendar and Summer Activity Guide
