Festival of New York 2022

This year will offer New Yorkers and visitors an unprecedented summer-long series of events that will showcase creativity and diversity across the city. The first of its kind, the 2022 Festival of New York will attempt to marshal the resiliency and spirit of collaboration in New York City through a number of events beginning Memorial Day and running through Labor Day. Working as a coalition of New York institutions, businesses, and organizations, Festival of New York aims to celebrate New York City, champion inclusion and access, and promote respect and compassion. Click here for a video about it

Partners for this city-wide showcase are still being added to the roster, but so far over 200 partners across healthcare, the arts, the nonprofit sphere, as well as businesses and many community-based organizations have signed up to participate.
