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 Out of Doors.

Beginning at 5:00 pm on all event days, entry to Damrosch Park will be limited to 3 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 performance from where they are, however, all bags will be subject to inspection.

Seating in Damrosch Park is first come, first served, and gates typically open one hour prior to the performance, unless otherwise noted. For popular performances, lines often form in advance of opening, and seating may reach capacity quickly. If you choose to stand in line, we recommend that you bring water and sunscreen and that your entire party be present.
