What’s a better way to celebrate the heat of summer than to wander around in it for three days perusing arts and crafts, and enjoying fine live entertainment? Summerfair at Coney Island, a nationally recognized event, suggests nothing could be better and they’re proving it by featuring more than 400 visual and performing artists from Friday to Sunday.
Wander around artist’s booths stuffed with work ranging from drawing and printmaking to fiber and leatherwork and more.
And enjoy entertainment from strolling balloon artists, magicians, cloggers, puppets, barbershop quartets and dancers. The acoustic stage will feature acts like Greg Mahan, Runnin’ on Empty and Jill & Bobby. And the Summer Showcase will show off the talents of Habeeba’s Belly Dancers, Harkie’s Hoedowners, Celtic Rhythm Dancers, Forget-Me-Not Historical Dancers and more.
Hours are 2-8 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $10 or $15 for a three-day pass. Get details here.
