As an annual arts festival since 2002, River To River has become a cornerstone of Lower Manhattan culture, providing an intense and rewarding way to experience the waterfronts, parks, plazas, hotels, historic landmarks, temporarily vacant office spaces, and other sites downtown. As the lead producer since 2011, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) has transformed the festival schedule and content in response to the changing landscape downtown and in order to better serve the River To River audience.
RIVER TO RIVER FOUNDING PARTNERS
River To River was founded in 2002 by American Express, The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the Alliance for Downtown New York, Arts Brookfield, Battery Park City Authority, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and South Street Seaport.
