We're free to attend and open to all again starting July 10th.
TICKETS: Because NYC is reopening in a big way, we're still very concerned about overcrowding... especially after a super busy opening night. So, we will still be ticketed our first three weekends. We're using ticket proceeds to waive vendor participation fees. Tickets are $5, and we are pledging at least 20% of any net ticket proceeds to charities promoting racial equity and COVID relief and recovery efforts.
SAFETY PROTOCOLS AND CHANGES: Visitors are encouraged to wear masks at all times, except when seated to eat and drink, which will be limited to the lawned picnic area. The picnic area has plenty of space to spread out and accommodate all attendees while still socially distanced. We will continue to track safety guidance and adjust these policies as necessary.
