The Island bills itself as “The Easiest Way To Get Away”, and its new season (May 1 to October 31) spirits you away to a plethora of exciting and diverse programs.
“Kicking off the season, the Island will host several special events in May. On May 12, NYC Bhangra will celebrate the start of spring with Holi Hai, a free festival featuring traditional Indian and Nepali dance, music and celebration in a sea of color. For classical music lovers, Rite of Summer will host free concerts throughout the season, starting with performances in Colonels Row on May 19. Returning for its 14th year, the Friends of Governors Island will present its annual free Family Fun Day on Sunday, May 27, featuring live music, theatrical performances, storytelling, arts and crafts and hands-on education for families.”
It’s now their fourth fest in NYC! This one has exclusive desserts as well as “a savory Salt Bar to ‘cleanse your palette'” and you’ll also get “access to an outdoor deck on the water with panoramic views of Manhattan”.
We have that too – so if you bring back some desserts, you can enjoy them on the Plaza!
