The summer season line-up at Little Island is looking awesome. 

Back for a second year, the program includes a variety of spectacles, all performed inside The Amph, the public park's theater.

Things kick off with The Big Mix, a three-week extravaganza that will run from June 16 through July 3. Each week, guests will experience a unique show that centers around and celebrates one of three summer holidays: Juneteenth, LGBTQIA+ Pride and Independence Day. 

Our Second Annual Music and Dance Festival will take over the space from July 20 through July 31. "Each day will feature multiple free performances throughout the park and be anchored by nightly ticketed [shows] in The Amph," reads an official press release about the happening.

Other exciting standouts include an innovative spin on contemporary circus (Robot Infidèle), Our Second Annual Storytelling Festival and Island Music Week. You can find the entire schedule of events right here.

To note: the staff at Little Island will once again host free weekly performances in The Glad and The Play Ground areas on Wednesdays through Sundays. Each night's shows will focus on a different theme, including kids and family programming, comedy, slam poetry, trivia, drag bingo, cabaret, sing-alongs and more.

If you haven't yet visited the relatively new Little Island, make sure you do so immediately. It is a glorious addition to the New York City cultural (and green!) landscape and an architectural gem.
