Coney Island has a packed calendar throughout the summer and beyond – such as Nathan’s famous July 4th Hot Dog Eating contest, fireworks on the beach, a sand sculpting competition, just to name a few. While most events take place from May to September, there are compelling reasons to visit year-round.
