One of our favorite Summer events is the annual Arthur Ashe Kids Day, the kickoff to the US Open. The event brings together our love of tennis and music, and is an all day celebration with games, entertainment and fun activities the whole family can enjoy! The day celebrates the life and legacy of the great Arthur Ashe and is a fun way to start the biggest two weeks of tennis in NYC.
AAKD has a knack for booking future superstars – Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato, Britney Spears, and Rihanna are just a handful of past performers! This year’s lineup is no exception – you’ll want to catch these rising stars! Check out the artists performing during the ticketed show in Arthur Ashe Stadium below. Tennis pros also join in the fun, taking on challenges for charity and playing in a relaxed setting. Tickets for the stadium show are on sale now!
