View Website

Now in its 12th year, City of Water Day is a free harbor-wide day organized by the Waterfront Alliance and its partners to get people to, on, and in the water. A Waterfront Festival at Piers 16 and 17 in Lower Manhattan's Seaport District will offer visitors the chance to get to know local marine life; participate in crafts and science experiments; and meet the many organizations that connect us to our waterfront. Nearby, the Con Edison Cardboard Kayak Race will delight fans of all ages, as 15 teams build and race cardboard boats. Free PortNYC Boat Tours will be offered across New York City, and there will be 50+ free satellite events throughout the region to celebrate our coastline and champion a climate-resilient New York Harbor. Experience your waterfront on City of Water Day!

All Ages.
