First day of summer

Various locations along 5th Avenue

Each year, the Sunset Park BID proudly participates in Make Music NY. Make Music NY is an annual event taking place every year since 2002 on the first day of summer (June 21). More than 875 free concerts take place across the 5 boroughs all day long. It is a free, public, celebration of music. This is not only a New York celebration, but a worldwide one. 327 cities in 111 countries across the globe take part every year!

The BID coordinates with business owners who agree to host bands and dance troupes for several hours, allowing them to use their electricity while they perform for free for the public on the sidewalk in front of their stores. Shoppers and pedestrians are treated to a music heralding of summer. This event transforms public spaces into entertainment forums for shoppers in Sunset Park

We are always looking for more performers to take part in this event every year. We have plenty of businesses that would love to host performances. If you'd like to participate in the next Make Music NY along 5th Avenue, give our office a call at (718) 439-7767.
