Still plenty to do this July

July is full of concerts and celebrations, namely the birth of our nation. From Brooklyn to Manhattan to Newark, some of the biggest names of the past, present, and future hit the arena circuit with summer tours. And, of course, there’s a fair share of sporting events. It’s all below in our round up of events in and around the Big Apple.



The Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks head back to the East River this year at 9:25pm on Tuesday, July 4, 2017. Barges park from 24th to 41st Street, so midtown is your best bet for great views. There are many special cruises and dinners on Independence Day, and if you’re in New Jersey, fireworks begin at sunset. And, of course, it wouldn’t be the 4th of July without Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island. How many dogs can you eat in 10 minutes?


 Brought to you by the same people who created Coachella, the Panorama Music Festival is the East Coast’s answer to three days of music and love in the sun. Set to take over Randall’s Island Park from July 28-30, 2017, the line up boasts such favorites as Frank Ocean, Solange, Nine Inch Nails, and A Tribe Called Quest.



The Public Theater recently received some heat for its production of “Julius Caesar” at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park, but that play took its final bow. Now The Public turns its gaze to Shakespeare’s famous fantasy, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Directed by Public regular Lear deBessonet, the cast includes Phylicia Rashad.
