Visitors have been trekking to the historic Coney Island Boardwalk for nearly a century in search of “fun.” With the opening of the Ford Amphitheater, the shoreline destination’s fun factor has been amplified for both concertgoers and performers alike. Opened in July 2016, the fully covered 5,000-seat outdoor venue is the first of its kind in the tristate area. Despite its brief tenure on the legendary boardwalk, the state-of-the-art facility captures the vibe of Coney Island’s past with its integration into the Childs Restaurant building, one of the first large-format restaurants in the United States.
The Ford Amphitheater focuses on music, but its warm-weather roster also includes comedy acts, multicultural events and more. Hometown favorites the Impractical Jokers inaugurated the venue, and Sting, Willie Nelson and Widespread Panic have added to a growing roster of legendary performers who have graced its stage.
Located in Brooklyn on West 21st Street, the venue is easily accessible via car, bus or subway. Finding the perfect restaurant, hotel or family activity near the Ford Amphitheater is simple. It is, after all, located right on the Coney Island Boardwalk with its three miles of breathtaking amusement rides, classic games, trademark eats and majestic views of the Atlantic Ocean. Visitors looking for a more educational experience are in for a treat at the New York Aquarium, located only a short walk away.
Once inside the venue, beer, wine and food—including some of Brooklyn’s iconic eats—are available for purchase from both concession areas and an on-site restaurant that boasts five unique dining experiences. For visitors looking for a nightcap following the show, there’s no better place for a cocktail than Coney Island.Who is playing at Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk this weekend?
