The 57th annual Huntington Summer Arts Festival launches Friday night and continues through the first week of August, offering a free series of dance, theater and music at the Chapin Rainbow Stage in Heckscher Park.
“The Huntington Summer Arts Festival is a cultural mainstay of Long Island and reflects our strong sense of community as we come together to celebrate the arts in an inclusive, family friendly environment. The Huntington Arts Council is proud to be the steward, in partnership with the Town of Huntington, of this FREE summer series,” said Kieran Johnson, executive director of the Huntington Arts Council.
“Our lineup is composed of a wide variety of artistic genres featuring something for everyone. Whether it be Women in Jazz week, Plaza Theatricals’ presentation of “Tick, Tick … Boom!,” or “How I Became a Pirate” for family night, Huntington Community Band, or Orchestra L.I. with David Stewart Wiley, I encourage everyone to come to a show; you won’t be disappointed. I hope to see you there!” he added.
Most performances start at 8 p.m. with family shows starting at 7 p.m.
