Family Fun Day
Kick off an exciting summer on Governors Island! Family Fun Day celebrates the season’s opening and the Island’s playful nature and free-range attitude. All performances and activities are family-friendly and FREE to the public.
Improvise with Story Pirates, be amazed and inspired by Mario the Magician and his inventions, show off your mad dance moves to Grammy-winning Tim Kubart and the Space Cadets, march with Shinbone Alley Stilt Band, goof around with Loony Toony the Clown, tell stories with Robin Bady, hone your art skills with Children’s Museum of the Arts, make puppets with Lisa Abbatomarco, learn about forts with National Park Service rangers, become a compost pro with Earth Matter, paint birdhouses to house Governors Island hatchlings and let your giggles and your belly laughs flood the park.
