Mark Your Calendars: Our Summer of Fun Lineup is Here!

April 18

We’ve just announced our full Summer of Fun events calendar, packed with an outstanding lineup of free events and activities, and we can’t wait – literally! For the first time, we’re kicking off our events season in May and keeping the fun going through the end of September with a host of exciting new events joining longtime Park favorites!

A Longer Summer of Fun means… More Summer Fun!

Starting up in May and running through autumn, our expanded Healthy on the Hudson season gives Park fans more opportunities to get fit on our gorgeous riverfront. And our expanded Hudson RiverKids season will offer more fun and engaging kids programs than ever – families can now enjoy magic, music and interactive storytelling twice a week on both Piers 25 and 62!

New Events Bring Sizzling Music and Opportunities to Explore

We’ve partnered with the Jazz Foundation of America to bring an exciting addition to our live music lineup! Jazz @ Pier 84 will bring incredible jazz performers to our waterfront on the first Thursday of June, July and August – sure to become a favorite among new and longtime jazz lovers!

This year we’re also bringing new opportunities to learn and explore on land and water! Keep an eye out for Hudson River Park’s Roving River Tricycle – an exhibit of live Hudson River wildlife that tours the Park on wheels. Our new Community EcoPaddle, offered in collaboration with Manhattan Kayak Company, invites participants to explore the Hudson River’s aquatic wildlife as they paddle.

Popular Programs Return to Dazzle and Entertain

Your favorites are back too, including the Hudson River Dance Festival, the 18th Annual Blues BBQ Festival, Big City Fishing, the Hudson RiverFlicks Movie Series, Sunset on the Hudson concerts, Salsa and Swing dancing! And for the third year in a row, the ever-popular Hudson River Park Games will offer a heart-pumping kick-off to the summer season!

So don’t miss a beat (flick, paddle or step)! Keep up with all of your favorite Summer of Fun Events here and on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram! See you this Summer of Fun!
