For the first time, kids are invited to experience the magic of live music in Central New York with five free concerts. Create unforgettable family memories under the stars at Lakeview Amphitheater.

Empower Federal Credit Union and Live Nation have teamed up for "Kids in Free Concert Series." One child, 12 and under, receives a free lawn seat with each paid adult lawn ticket.

“This program is an example of one of the many reasons why we love being in partnership with the Amphitheater,” said Chris Keller, CMO. “It gives our community a wonderful place to gather, including our younger audiences.”
