“Tonight begins a summer-long celebration – a tradition in Cedarhurst.” Announced Mayor Benjamin Weinstock, as he initiated the 2015 “Tuesday Night Concert Under the Gazebo”.

This year’s summer concert series promises entertainment for people of all ages. The first concert was kicked off with award-winning magician DiDi Maxx. She mesmerized children and parents alike with her illusions featuring props, swords, and balloon animals.

This outstanding performance was a great opening for the 20-piece Swingtime Big Band. Toes were tapping and fingers were snapping as the band played old swing favorites and classics from the Great American Songbook. The pavilion served as the perfect dance floor. Children hearing the tunes for the first time twirled alongside couples revisiting their youth.

Over 60 benefactors contributed to the 2015 concert series including the opening night sponsors: TD Bank, Five Towns Mason Materials Inc., Capital One Bank, Cedarhurst Business Improvement District, Jildor Shoes, Haagen-Dazs Ice Cream Shop, Lawrence – Cedarhurst American Legion Post #339, John F. Capobianco, Architect, and Law Offices of Ronald A. Spirn. Mayor Weinstock explained “all of our sponsors play a vital part in making these concerts available at absolutely no expense to our taxpayers.”

Mayor, Benjamin Weinstock, The Board of Trustees, and public officials, along with our generous sponsors from local businesses and corporations are very enthusiastic about the rest of the lineup. On July 14th the Village brings Ireland to the Park with the New York Showband. The complete concert schedule can be found at or at the Cedarhurst Village Hall on Cedarhurst Avenue.

Spend some time on Tuesday nights at the park, while you are there, we invite you to bring your children and grandchildren to enjoy our playground and water park. You will be happy you did!
