The Hudson River Dance Festival June 8 performance has been canceled. The health of our staff, dancers and community is our number one priority, and due to the air quality conditions in New York City, we have decided to cancel the Thursday night performance of the Hudson River Dance Festival, along with all our other outdoor events. We continue to follow guidance from public health officials to determine if Friday’s events can take place safely. Visit here for our current alerts and advisories, and check our calendar for updated event status.
Hudson River Park and The Joyce Theater present the Hudson River Dance Festival, assembling some of today’s most exciting dance companies for two spectacular free shows.
Taking place Thursday, June 8 and Friday, June 9, the showcase celebrates the vibrant voices and diverse styles our city has to offer. Set against the incomparable backdrop of a Hudson River sunset, this two-day festival brings world-class performances to HRPK’s Pier 63 lawn.
This year, street dance and tap performances come to our stage, along with ballet and modern dance. The list of performers for 2023 includes (lineup subject to change):
- Ayodele Casel
- Complexions Contemporary Ballet
- The Missing Element, commissioned by Works & Process
- Paul Taylor Dance Company

We hope you will join us for one, or both, nights of the Festival and enjoy this truly stunning event in the Park.
Our 25th Anniversary event season is presented by Hudson River Park Friends, the Park’s designated fundraising partner. HRPK Friends is an independent, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the completion, care and enhancement of the Park.
Hudson River Park is not part of NYC Parks, and we rely on private funds for our free programs, maintenance and operations. That means your donations are essential to ensuring our event season remains free for the public. Show your support today.
