Things To Do in NYC This Weekend: Celebrate Pride, Hall of Gems Reopens, Van Gogh
We have a lot to do this weekend, starting with our media partner's virtual Party on Wheels with Dan and Claudia Zanes. Our other top picks include a mini-fest on the Gowanus Canal, Queens' Rockstock and Barrel Fest, and the Queens International Children's Fest.
Pride celebrations are proliferating with kid-oriented activities at the Brooklyn Children's Museum, the Brooklyn Pride mini-fest, a Friday night screening of The Princess Bride with pre-screening show tune singalong, the First Atlantic Avenue Pride celebration, and tie-dyed Pride flag construction at CMOM.
The Cooper-Hewitt Museum re-opens to design fans on Thursday, a second immersive Van Gogh exhibit sets up camp on the Lower East Side (just slightly less expensive than the one on Vesey), and the Natural History Museum's Mignon Hall of Gems sparkles once again with new giant amethyst geodes.
The Mommy Poppins Event Calendar is ever-evolving as festivals and movies under the stars continue to unfurl. We also have all the info you need to get to NYC beaches, plot your June outings, and pick fresh strawberries.
As always, if an event piques your interest, click through to our listing for all the details, including addresses and times. And keep in mind: In NYC, especially now, really cool things to do with kids often book up quickly, so register or buy your tickets ASAP.
