Get out your lawn chairs, your sunscreen and your beach umbrellas, because it’s warming up in the Town of Babylon. It’s almost that time we’ve all been waiting for… Summer!

As soon as we saw the Town send out the 2019 Town Parks and Recreation Guide (thanks Dep. Supervisor Tony Martinez and staff!) we start getting the urge to go out and enjoy all the great events and amenities available all across Town.

Whether you want to rock out to the Town Concert series, take in a free family movie or go play volleyball in the sand at the beach, the Town of Babylon is a great place to be for the Summer!

The Town Of Babylon has officially put out their Babylon Recreation guide for 2019.  You can download the guide for the full list of events and activities through the rest of the year HERE, but we thought we’d put together a short summary of our favorite Town Events and activities.

Also, be sure to share this with your neighbors, friends and family too! They should all subscribe to our Events emails and listen in to the podcast all Spring and Summer as we fill you in on what’s going on around Town.


The Town of Babylon Concert Series


Every year I enjoy the Town Concerts more than the year before. Last year they added a Bruno Mars cover band, Uptown Funk, and these guys were AMAZing! There is at least ONE concert here for everyone, but just hanging out at the bandshell on a Summer night is soothing too.
