Coney Island USA
Coney Island USA exists to defend the honor of American popular culture through innovative exhibitions and performances. Presenting and producing exciting new works, our approach is rooted in mass culture and the traditions of P.T. Barnum, dime museums, burlesque, circus sideshows, vaudeville, and Coney Island itself. Preserving and championing a set of uniquely American visual and performing art forms, we seek to create an international forum for cultural preservation and discourse, and where Coney Island represents these impulses, we strive to make it once again a center for live art and entrepreneurial spirit. Coney Island USA operates a multi-arts center in a landmark building in the heart of Coney Island. We produce and present programming in three unique venues: the Coney Island Museum, Sideshows by the Seashore and the Shooting Gallery/Arts Annex. Serving both New York City and an international community that includes visitors to Coney Island and enthusiasts of various cultural forms, our signature activities include the Mermaid Parade, the Coney Island Circus Sideshow, the Coney Island Museum, Coney Island Film Festival and new theatrical work. - See more at: coneyisland.com/about-coney-island-usa#sthash.L0FM9BfY.dpuf
Seaside Summer Concert Series
Founded in 1978, the Seaside Summer Concert Series in Coney Island hosts musicians of all stripes in a series of free outdoor concerts on (mostly) Thursdays in July and August.
The series moved from Asser Levy Park to West 21st Street and Surf Avenue in 2011. This year the festival brings particularly good vibes to an area that was ravaged by Hurricane Sandy in November 2012.
