Each summer, the Conservancy hosts a series of eco-education and multicultural performances for the whole family to enjoy. This year's Family Performance Festival is chock-a-block full of fun and learning through music, storytelling, Park adventures, puppetry, and more! Programs happen near the most natural playground, the Great Hill (located inside the Park near West 106th Street).

Pack a picnic, grab your blanket, and get ready to discover Central Park in a whole new way!

In the case of inclement weather, programs will be canceled.
