The very name of the Free Shows portal speaks for itself - it contains news about events in New York City, which can be accessed for free. And by the way, literally, not figuratively.

Anyone with information can post an announcement on this site. It must be (and only) news with a detailed description of where free concerts, free exhibitions, free tours, or interesting sporting events take place, where you do not need to buy a ticket. This could be a recommendation on where to go to watch a movie or theater shows for free.

So with us, you will always find out where to go in New York for free.
