In an effort to create a more enjoyable experience as well as a comfortable and safe performance environment, Lincoln Center is expanding security measures for Midsummer Night Swing.

Beginning at 5:00 pm on all event days, entry to Damrosch Park will be limited to three access points. Each of these points will include a security/bag inspection performed by Lincoln Center Security.

Patrons who are already inside of the park are welcome to remain and enjoy the music from where they are, however, all bags will be subject to inspection.

Leave Your Baggage at Home

Bags and purses, regardless of size, may not be brought onto the dance floor. We strongly recommend that you leave your bags at home, but if you need to bring them, you must use the bag check in Damrosch Park for a fee of $4 per bag.
Note: Passholders receive one free bag check per entry.

Food & Drink

Come early for a drink at one of our summer bars. Then, after you work up an appetite on the dance floor, stop by one of the visiting food trucks. And don’t forget the Fun Bar featuring specialty frozen rosé, summer cocktails, wines, and beers. Available at Damrosch Park from 5:00 to 10:00 pm on evenings featuring performances.

Food Menu

The Deck, located at the southeastern corner of Damrosch Park, will feature a special Kid Zone to welcome Lincoln Center’s youngest patrons with a “mini bar” stocked full of juices, candies, and free fruit, along with games.

Credit cards are accepted at bars.
Drinks and food are available with or without a ticket.

No Parking, Eating, or Drinking on the Dance Floor

Please refrain from stopping to take photos or videos while on the dance floor. Photos and videos may be taken from the sidelines and off the floor—don’t forget to tag #MidsummerNightSwing! In addition, food and drinks are not permitted on the floor.


The dance floor is wheelchair accessible. Assistive listening devices are available to borrow from the Information Tent.
