Generosity from folks like you ensures that Coney Island USA can continue to bring you innovative Arts programming like the Coney Island Circus Sideshow, The Mermaid Parade, Burlesque at the Beach, The Coney Island Film Festival and the Coney Island Museum, for many years to come.

To honor our valued donors we have created an exclusive membership program. As a member of Coney Island USA you can take pride in knowing you’re helping sustain not only our work in our spaces but also as an advocate for preservation and responsible development in the iconic neighborhood we call home. Coney Island USA is a 501(c) (3) not for profit organization. In accordance with IRS regulations, contributions are fully deductible to the extent allowed by law.

And so you can let the world know how much you love Coney Island USA, we'll include an awesome limited edition Coney Island USA Member 2020 lapel pin. Wear it proudly!

Beyond the lapel pin, all of our many membership levels come with other awesome benefits -- including at a minimum free admission to the Sideshow and the Museum*. As the levels rise, your benefits get better too. Note that Mermaid Parade Judgeships start at the "Mermaid Parade Judge" Level.
