Nassau County Executive Laura Curran is proud to announce a full slate of FREE events this summer, starting with a lineup of rockin’ summer concerts at the Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre in Eisenhower Park. The Saturday night concert series, sponsored by Jovia Financial Credit Union and presented by GnR Events, is part of the County’s free summer entertainment series which features dozens of free outdoor concerts, movies, and special events being held at parks across the County.  
 
“Nassau’s robust vaccination program has been key to reopening our County and we are all looking forward to going back to the activities we enjoy. I am proud to announce that summer is back in Nassau starting with a full slate of events including concerts and movies for all ages to enjoy.  Thank you to Jovia Financial Credit Union for partnering with us to bring a great Saturday Night Concert series lineup to Lakeside Theatre at Eisenhower,” said County Executive Laura Curran.  
 
"At Jovia Financial Credit Union, we are committed to supporting our community and we’re passionate about bringing people together. Sponsoring this free concert series at Eisenhower Park, in the heart of Nassau County, is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the summer with friends and family while enjoying great music and in-person performances,” said Renu Dalessandro, Chief Marketing Officer, Jovia Financial Credit Union.
 
Beginning in June, the County will be offering dozens of concerts and movies for the whole family to enjoy.  Kicking off the summer fun is Jovia Financial Credit Union Eisenhower Park Concert Series, which will begin on June 26 at 8pm at the Lakeside Theatre at Eisenhower Park (Field 6).  While all concerts are free, advanced tickets are required.
