New Roc Kids’ Summerfest ‘23

The New Roc Kids’ Summerfest '23 Performance Series is scheduled for several Monday afternoons throughout the summer and will take place in the outdoor courtyard space located at 33 LeCount Place, New Rochelle, with ample room for up to 200 attendees (including adults). Cushman & Wakefield has partnered with the New Roc tenants and stakeholder partners including Regal Cinema, Applebee's, Buffalo Wild Wings, Burger King, SkyZone Trampoline Park, Pinkberry, Planet Fitness, Banana's Axe Throwing, Monroe College, Audi New Rochelle, NRPD’s P.A.C.T. unit (Police and Community Together), and New Rochelle’s Fire Dept. Their involvement underscores the collaborative spirit and commitment to community engagement.

"We are delighted to bring the New Roc Kids’ Summer Performance Series to the vibrant community of New Rochelle," said Christina Damiano, senior property Manager at Cushman & Wakefield. "This initiative not only entertains and engages families but also celebrates the diverse cultural fabric of our city. We are grateful for the support of our partners and look forward to creating lasting memories for children and families throughout the summer."

This exciting initiative aims to reinvigorate business, engage the community, and foster goodwill among New Roc's tenants and their most valued clientele—families with young children. The series will feature a lineup of five (possibly more) scheduled outdoor performances, showcasing inclusive, accessible, and culturally diverse entertainment—a conglomerate of world-renowned talent.

The New Roc Kids’ Summerfest '23 promises to be an extraordinary event for families in New Rochelle. Mark your calendars for the afterschool / after-camp performances, held throughout July, August, and early September. Performances will start at 4:30pm and are expected to last between 1 and 1.5 hours.
