Nikon Jones Beach Theater

Nikon Jones Beach Theater, located at Jones Beach State Park in Wantagh, NY is one of Long Island's greatest attractions.

The theater is a major arena in Nassau County on Long Island and has many shows from really popular artists during the summer months. The concert arena has 15,200 seats and is named after Nikon, the camera company.

It's always fun to go to a show and see your favorite artists performing songs you have listened to on the radio. And the arena is so close to the ocean - a great location for summer concerts.

All shows are rain or shine, so dress properly for the weather. And it can get chilly at times because it's near the ocean.

Some things to remember...

  • This is a major venue, so all rules apply: no alcohol, smoking, pets, bags, or backpacks.
  • You are allowed to bring a personal camera into the venue, however you cannot use any cameras with flash, video recorders, or removable lense cameras.

The Bay Stage

The Bay Stage is a new addition to Nikon Jones Beach. It is located near the main arena, but has more of outdoor summer concert feel. There is a 5000 seat capacity and the shows are general admission.

The bay stage is standing room only - there is no where to sit or lay on a blanket. There is a designated area for parents to wait for their kids.

The Bay Stage is geared for performers not ready for a major ampitheater, but too popular for a ballroom. It runs on days when the Nikon Jones Beach Theater doesn't and the ticket prices are cheaper. The Bay Stage is named after Zach's Bay in Wantagh, NY.


Just enter your start address into the box...
