Thank you for 11 days of
LIVE EXPERIENCES including intimate and provocative dance, music, visual art, and new media projects in public parks, in historic landmarks, on Governors Island, and along the waterfront.
LEARNING more about the creative process and historic architecture in Lower Manhattan, as well as the past, present and future of site-based work.
SOCIALIZING with festival artists, partners, and fellow art-lovers.

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.
