Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony at Northwell Jones Beach Theater Unveils Major Renovations

On Thursday, June 27, the Northwell at Jones Beach Theater celebrated its 72nd anniversary with a ribbon-cutting ceremony to unveil the latest renovations in a multimillion-dollar project. The event marked a significant milestone for the historic venue, originally constructed in the 1950s, and highlighted its ongoing evolution to enhance the concert-going experience.

George Gorman, Regional Director of New York State Parks, welcomed the gathered crowd, acknowledging the hard work of the staff, Live Nation, and New York State Parks in bringing the project to fruition. He emphasized the theater’s rich history and the importance of these renovations in preserving its legacy. Gorman extended special thanks to New York State Senator Kevin Thomas, Governor Kathy Hochul, and other key supporters for their contributions, which were crucial in making the renovations possible.

During the ceremony, Tom See, Live Nation’s President of Venue Nation, spoke enthusiastically about the enhancements made to the theater. “The reopening of Jones Beach Theater is the start of the next chapter in the venue’s history,” he said. “As part of the venue’s renovation, you’ll just see it when you step on up. Check out this amazing brand new entry. A state-of-the-art entry of Instagrammable moments and you’ll walk right into a community plaza.”

The new community plaza, approximately the size of a football field, represents a significant improvement. “We never had that location at Jones Beach where the community could be able to hang out,” See explained. “We put them right into a concourse and it had lines and a difficult way to maneuver. But now this open concourse provides the community a place to come in, enjoy food and beverages before they go in and see the show.”

The renovations also include a reimagined premium experience, offering 280-degree views of Zachs Bay. To ensure fans enjoy as much of the show as possible and spend less time in lines, the venue has added more than 30% more food and beverage outlets. “So you can hang out, enjoy the show, and spend time with family,” See noted. “But most importantly, we added 20% more fresh food options.”

The ceremony concluded with the official ribbon-cutting, symbolizing the start of the next chapter for Northwell Jones Beach Theater. Attendees were invited to explore the new features and enjoy the event, setting the stage for many more memorable performances at this iconic venue.
