I am so very proud of our parks system and all we have to offer in our great county. This summer, we have an action-packed lineup. With a combination of quality entertainment and fun activities for the whole family, we look forward to seeing you out and about.
Alongside my continued dedication to creating tourism, the incredible support we have received from local business sponsors has made bringing top-notch events to our residents at no additional cost, a great reality.
Here’s a look at some upcoming happenings. Pack your lawn chair and mark your calendar, because we have some good old-fashioned entertainment in store.
The month of July is going to be full. Beginning with a musical performance by Swingtime Big Band on Wednesday, July 2, we are kicking off quite a busy time. The following day, again stop by the Harry
Chapin Lakeside Theatre in Eisenhower Park to enjoy Mike DelGuidice and the Billy Joel Band. Both acts will hit the stage at 7 p.m.
If it’s up to us, this Fourth of July is going to be one you are sure to remember. Starting at 10 a.m., the 1864 Independence Day Celebration will be flowing with music, dancing, trade demonstrations, speeches, a parade and so much more to enjoy. We hope to see you all at Old Bethpage Village Restoration for the fun.
If Friday’s festivities aren’t enough, grab the family and head to Lakeside Theatre on Saturday, July 5, for Neil Berg’s much-anticipated “100 Years of Broadway.” Like most of our musical performances, this must-see production is free of charge and will start at 7 p.m.
The International Music Nights Concert Series is a great Nassau County tradition, with nearly two-dozen nights dedicated to music and culture that honor a range of ethnic groups. Celebrate Punjabi American
Night on Sunday, July 6, German American Night on Monday, July 7 and Armenian American Night on Sunday, July 13, all beginning at 7 p.m. at Lakeside.
Our busy calendar continues to unfold with a number of incredible music shows at 7 p.m. at Lakeside Theatre.. On Tuesday, July 8, see Jersey 4—a Tribute to Frankie Valli—and on Friday, July 11, check out
Oldies Night with Jay Siegel’s Tokens.
On Wednesday, July 9, South Bound will be entertaining audiences at Eisenhower Park’s Parking Field 6A beginning at noon, before Five Towns College Pops hit the stage at Muttontown Preserve’s Chelsea Mansion at 7 p.m.
The Long Island International Film Expo (LIFE) will be taking place from Wednesday, July 9 through Thursday, July 17. Please contact Bellmore movies at 516-783-3199 or the Nassau County Film Office at 516-571-3168 for more information.
In the meantime, to help you get in the spirit, grab some popcorn and get comfy at Lakeside Theatre, on Thursday, July 10, for a showing of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. The film is set to start at dusk.
Also, remember to clear your schedule the second weekend in July because the Cole Brothers Circus is coming to town. Shows will take place at Parking Field 6A of Eisenhower Park on Friday, July 11 at 5 and 8 p.m., as well as 2, 5 and 8 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
