36th Annual Hippo Playground Spring Fair
An Upper West Side institution, The Hippo Playground Spring Fair features pony rides, bouncy castles, a petting zoo, games, prizes, crafts, food, cupcake decorating, face painting, entertainment, and more.
Nestled inside Riverside Park at 91st Street and Riverside Drive, Hippo Playground is a gem on the Upper West Side. For years, volunteers have dedicated time and energy toward improving the playground equipment, gardens, and renovating the Park House. Now families can enjoy a beautiful playground, rent out the Park House for parties, and participate in children's art and music programs over the summer. Proceeds from the Fair help fund the Hippo Playground maintenance and special programs.
Tickets can be purchased for individual rides and activities, or opt for an all-inclusive activity bracelet (restrictions apply). A must do event for the 7-and-under set.
** Please keep your family and others safe by wearing masks and social distancing. If an event appears too crowded, try using the "nearby" search feature on our event calendar to find something else to do.
