The all-day festivities are filled with entertaining performances, activities, local merchants, a free (ticketed) screening of Snowmen, and much more.

Cast members from the Broadway show WICKED, Broadway Kids Care, AudraRox and Bubble Do Beatles will take center stage outdoors on the plaza at BMCC Tribeca PAC.  For the first time, Washington Market Park will host storytellers, puppeteers, sand sculptors and other festival favorites.  To celebrate its 20th Anniversary, the Church Street School for Music and Art will offer a massive Guitar “Play-in” led by Church Street School dad Mike Diamond “Mike D” of the Beastie Boys. Families will also enjoy the popular Kite Garden, where kids can make their own kites, and the Bubble Garden where youngsters can create gigantic bubbles. The Street Fair will host restaurants, merchants and organizations from the Tribeca neighborhood. Students from local schools will also be at the fair with creative fundraising activities and vibrant student artwork.
