When the sun goes down, the fun begins at Cedar Point with Cedar Point Nights, happening now through Aug. 18.
Every night, guests can customize their experience, whether it be unwinding by a fire pit or dancing the night away to live music and DJs.
Lakeside Beach Music Festival
New for this year, along the Lakeside Midway, the Lakeside Stage will host a nighttime music festival with continuous live performances from local bands. Guests can take in the tunes on the outdoor lawn, on blankets or Adirondack chairs, roast s’mores and play family games, do crafts and more.
The Lakeside Beach Music Festival will feature performances by Not Fast Enuff, Surf’s Up!, Mellow Yellow, Country Chill and Walkin’ on Sunshine. The show will come to a close with the Beach Bash, an ultimate end-of-the-night beach blowout full of beach party anthems.
Near the Lakeside Stage, the beach boardwalk will be filled with stilt walkers, clown performers and characters dressed in LED costumes. Many activities will be available to enjoy, including Lake Erie driftwood painting, mini pirate raft building, a seashell sand dig, glow face painting and giant corn hole.
On Cedar Point Beach
Over on the park’s beach, guests can grab custom headphones and enjoy the Silent Disco. DJ Hurricane and DJ Resistance will play summer sounds at the Beach Glow Party, and the Toes in the Sand Band will offer soothing sounds near the Sand Bar at Hotel Breakers, along the Cedar Point Boardwalk.
The beach will also offer oversized glow inflatables, beach activities like glow volleyball, glow corn hole, light-up limbo and glow cube team trivia. Fire pits and glow furniture will be available for those looking to just relax.
Surf’s Up Food Fest
If you get hungry as the night goes on, head over to the Surf’s Up Food Fest, located near the Lakeside Stage and along the beach and boardwalk. Take a bite out of summer favorites like perch tacos, jerk chicken pitas, custom hot dog creations, grilled pineapple on-a-stick, ice cream novelties and blueberry crumb dessert will be served up fresh, either grilled on the beach or from the Cedar Point Food Truck.
This year’s event features the new Moon Glow signature drink, a blend of green apple flavor with Sprite, served in a souvenir light-up glow cup. Guests can also get other beverages, including electric lemonade, bottled beer, craft beers and wine.
