“Summer is a great time to be a Long Islander.  We’re so pleased to partner with these townships and organizations to offer a full calendar of family fun events, allowing locals to enjoy the beauty of Long Island beaches, parks and downtown centers, free of charge,” said Linda Armyn, Senior Vice President, Bethpage Federal Credit Union.  “Whether its movies, concerts, or arts and crafts, there is an event for everyone to get out and be a part of their community this summer.”

In Suffolk County, Bethpage has sponsored four summer event series.  The Sounds of Summer Concert Series at Tanger Outlets at the Arches in Deer Park offers a free concert every Saturday at 6 pm at the Main Fountain with performers including Conor Maynard, Hot Chelle Rae and Owl City.  Attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating. 

Bethpage has also partnered with the Islip Arts Council to present its annual free concert at Heckscher State Park in East Islip on Saturday, July 13 at 8 pm.  This year’s show “Recovery Through the Arts – Play it Forward” is dedicated to friends, neighbors and loved ones who are still putting their lives together from the effects of Hurricane Sandy.  Throughout the course of the evenings, attendees will be able to make a donation to the United Way of Long Island’s Hurricane Relief Fund.

The Town of Babylon Summer Concert Series, sponsored by Bethpage, also offers free outdoor concerts at Tanner Park in Copiague and Overlook Beach in Babylon featuring local tribute bands and musicians.
