Theater for the New City presents its 27th annual Lower East Side Festival of the Arts, a massive annual performance marathon in the theater plus on the block of East Tenth Street between First and Second Avenues.

See hundreds of diverse well-known and emerging artists ranging from theater to dance, music to movies, plus explore a street fair with vendors,  food sellers, booths from nearby restaurants and kid performers.

An outdoor stage adjoining the theater offers music and multi-discipline performances with performances by and for children inside the Johnson Theater. An art show curated by Carolyn Ratcliffe graces the TNC lobby spaces.

Adventures from The Shed

Talented Chickenshed teaching artists lead preschoolers and their families through an immersive and inclusive performance with puppetry, music, movement, storytelling and a bit of American Sign Language. Very interactive and lots of fun.
