New York Philharmonic Free Memorial Day Concert

Have you always wanted to see the New York Philharmonic but don’t want to spend the big bucks? Then check them out on May 25 at their free Memorial Day Concert. Held at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, free tickets will be distributed there at 6 o’ clock sharp on a first-come, first-served basis. Monday, May 25 at 8pm. Nyphil.org

Flagship Brewery’s Fleet Week Music Festival

In honor of NYC’s Fleet Week, the Flagship Brewery in Staten Island is hosting a festival over Memorial Day Weekend.  Expect beer, sailors, and hopefully some type of sustenance to prevent people from getting too drunk. The festival will run from 12pm-8pm. Now how do we get to Statin Island, again? Sunday, May 24 at 12pm. Theflagshipbrewery.com

Fleet Week at the Intrepid

It’s Memorial Day Weekend in NYC, which means it’s also Fleet Week. A perfect way to honor the soldiers who have fought / are fighting for our country, while also partying in uniform. Every year the Intrepid Museum hosts a myriad of activities–summer movie series, lectures from former servicemen, programs and interactive displays–all for free at Pier 86. Come join in on the fun! May 20 – 26. Intrepidmuseum.org

Electric Daisy Carnival

Looking for a less patriotic and more, well, belligerent way to spend your three-day weekend? Check out the Electric Daisy Carnival, held this year at Metlife Stadium in NJ. Featuring the top acts in EDM music–Calvin Harris, Tiesto, Bassnectar, to name a few–this is the do-not-miss musical event of the weekend. May 23 – 24. Electricdaisycarnival.com
