Outdoor Venues to Visit this Summer

By Sarah Prawl


New York completely transforms in the summertime, with everyone flocking outside to enjoy all that the city has to offer.

Great Performances works with several unique outdoor venues and institutions which are also open to the public and great to add to your list of places to visit this Summer!

Rich in history and culture, Caramoor is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and with over six venues located on their grounds, it is the perfect summer destination.

Each venue is truly unique and perfect for private events, concerts, picnics and more.

Great Performances has partnered with Caramoor since 2007 and is proud to offer a range of delicious and organic food items to satisfy your hunger. Stop by the Katchie Food Truck or pre-order picnic boxes during your visit!

The Caramoor Summer season begins on June 16 and ends July 29. For more info on upcoming events and concerts, take a look at their event calendar.

With breathtaking views of the Hudson River and the New Jersey Palisades, and a 28-acre public garden and cultural center, it’s no surprise that Wave Hill was voted the Most Loved Local Culture Spot by Time Out Magazine.

Filled with intimate gardens and spacious buildings, Wave Hill is the perfect location for any celebration. From weddings to corporate events and social gatherings, Wave Hill offers the perfect backdrop for your next event.

Stop by the Cafe at Wave Hill located inside the Wave Hill House and enjoy our seasonal menu offerings.
