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, and goof around with Loony Toony the Clown!
Other performers and programmers include:
Face painting by Agostino Arts
The Homespun Merry Go Round
Puppet making with Lisa Abbatomarco
The festival takes place in the Island’s historic district. With its open grassy areas, tall shady trees, and charming 19th century cottages, it’s the perfect place for watching the performances, playing games and picnicking!
