Things To Do

Gov­er­nors Island is an extra­or­di­nary and unique des­ti­na­tion for trans­for­ma­tive pub­lic art, unfor­get­table events, cul­tur­al and edu­ca­tion­al pro­gram­ming and recre­ation­al activ­i­ties for all ages. Each year, Gov­er­nors Island hosts an impres­sive ros­ter of pro­grams, exhi­bi­tions and activ­i­ties, pre­sent­ed by the Trust for Gov­er­nors Island, the Nation­al Park Ser­vice and the Friends of Gov­er­nors Island, as well as dozens of diverse orga­ni­za­tions from across the five bor­oughs and beyond.

In Fall 2021, the Trust for Gov­er­nors Island and the City of New York announced that Gov­er­nors Island will be open to the pub­lic year-round begin­ning in 2021. Activ­i­ties, pub­lic pro­grams and events will be updat­ed here on an ongo­ing basis. To sub­mit a per­mit appli­ca­tion or pro­pos­al for an event, click here.
