Arts Al Fresco Series

Mark your calendars! Enjoy free outdoor arts experiences proudly supported by Con Edison across our service area.

About the Series

Con Edison is a longstanding partner for the arts community in New York City and Westchester, both of which were hard-hit by COVID-19. As New York sets on a path to recovery, the arts sector is going to be key in its revitalization.

Con Edison is providing over $800,000 in support of free and safe events to the public through outdoor arts experiences, from grand stages to pocket parks in communities of all kinds across the company’s service territory.

Power of Giving Program

We support hundreds of nonprofit organizations in New York City and Westchester County to strengthen neighborhoods, sustain communities, and improve lives. These philanthropic efforts support the arts, environment, and important educational initiatives in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Many of Con Edison's 14,000 employees share a personal commitment to the region's vitality through their own volunteer efforts and choose to support communities through the company's matching gifts program.
