BEST OF NYC THIS WEEK

We are so excited to announce our first in-person Kid on the Town event, a family-friendly Good Vibes on the Lower East Side tour on Saturday June 4th at 11 am.

We're collaborating with Women of Culture to explore the art, food and culture of one of NYC’s most vibrant neighborhoods. Families can look at and make art, try delicious snacks, and meet like-minded New Yorkers IRL!
Spots are limited and there is an early-bird discount so sign up now.

In the meantime, there's plenty of culture and activities on our events calendar this warm weekend! Look for sailors and get patriotic with Fleet Week events, eat and party at fairs and festivals all over town, visit real-life Candy Lands, see some of our top theater picks, and get $20 Off-Broadway tickets.
