All Summer Long: Dancing, Music + Movies on the Pier in Riverside Park

Summer on the Hudson, a May-to-September series of free events in Riverside Park, will kick off this weekend with events including a tour of the park’s monuments and a free Tai Chi session.

The annual outdoor festival offers concerts, dance performances and parties, film screenings, kids programming, health & wellness and more.


Events will be taking place throughout the park; here are some returning long-time favorites happening on Pier I at West 70th Street:

Mamapalooza! A celebration of moms featuring music, food, wellness activities, art and activism. Sunday, May 22 from 12-5pm.

West Side County Fair: This family-friendly outdoor extravaganza will include live magic, music, carnival rides and games, plus local food and vendors. Sunday, September 4 from 1-6pm. 


Silent Disco: A dance party with headphones! Three live DJs will spin music of different genres, which you can switch between.  Headphones are provided on a first come, first serve basis. This will probably look pretty weird to anyone who doesn’t know what’s going on. Saturdays: June 4, July 2, August 6 and September 10 from 6-10pm.
