Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC)
River To River Festival presents a diverse collection of dance, music, theater and visual art by both renowned and breakout artists from NYC and beyond. The festival seeks to provide world-class, free summer entertainment and to inspire residents, workers and visitors in the neighborhoods south of Chambers Street by connecting them to the creative process, unique places and each other. For audiences of few to crowds of thousands, River To River provides an intense and rewarding way to experience and discover Lower Manhattan’s waterfronts, parks, plazas and history.

River To River was created in the aftermath of 9/11 with the intention to heal and celebrate New Yorkers’ resiliency through to the power of art. For almost 20 years, this principle has been the driving force behind this unique festival, totally free and open to all.
