Must-See Outdoor Music, Performances & Festivals An Hour or Less From Huntington

We're here for the music and that is especially true on Long Island during the spring and summer months. Some of the staff can't miss going to a concert at Jones Beach, others grab their favorite chair and head to a free concert in a park. You can even find Long Island vineyards and breweries with music to enjoy while sipping preferred beverage.  

If large scale music festivals are more your speed, then forget Coachella & Lollapalooza- we have great music without the hassle of air-travel.

Scroll to find great festivals an hour or less away with local and nationally renowned artists- most notably Great South Bay Music Festival! 

Whether you find yourself at a park, an open air amphitheater or a vineyard- you're sure to have a good time.
