For the 30th anniversary season of SummerStage, the SummerStage Kids Family Day series expanded to offer eight dates across all five boroughs. These programs featureed music, dance, circus, and other interactive activities. Highlights this year will included performances from highly acclaimed young metalheads Unlocking the Truth, in Red Hook Park; celebrated children’s musician Laurie Berkner in Herbert Von King Park; and jazz great Wycliffe Gordon in Queensbridge Park.
2015 marked the third year of SummerStage Kids’ focus on contemporary circus. Families saw the best circus companies from North America and beyond make their mark in New York City as part of the “International Contemporary Circus Festival.”
