The very first festival in 1978 was a success as it achieved its goal of exposing locals and visitors alike to a collection of the city’s artistic and cultural riches. This summer street festival in New York continues to promote public awareness via increased accessibility, visibility and attendance at the museums.

Today, the festival’s reach goes way beyond New York City. Tourists from around the country travel in the thousands to enjoy the festival. In fact, over its 37 years, attendance at the festival has surpassed the one million visitors mark. It is because of this success that the stretch from 82nd to 105th Streets along Fifth Avenue have been designated as the Museum Mile.

Enjoy 23 car-free blocks of NYC, free access to all museums from 6pm-9pm for all museums along the mile, live bands and entertainment as well as art in the street!
