Memorial Day Weekend 2018: Hamptons events

The summer is kicking off this weekend

View as Map

After what seemed like a never-ending winter (we definitely weren’t anticipating having to deal with multiple nor’easters in March), summer is finally kicking off with Memorial Day Weekend.

The East End has been graced with some beautiful beach weather lately, but the holiday weekend might be a bit rainy. While we’re hoping we can get a few hours of sunshine in there, a lot of Memorial Day Weekend events in the Hamptons are at least partially indoors. Check out these events happening this upcoming weekend to stay busy.

If you know of any events that you don’t see here, feel free to leave a comment or email hamptons@curbed.com.
