The Seaport District, being revitalized by the Howard Hughes Corporation, is proud to be one of the original founding partners of the River To River Festival. Now in its 16th year, The Howard Hughes Corporation and Lower Manhattan Cultural Council have collaborated on many cultural events to welcome visitors to Lower Manhattan and are excited to engage and enthrall thousands of visitors again this year during the performances the festival will attract to the neighborhood this June.
While Pier 17 is under construction, The Seaport District is set to welcome a rotating roster of temporary activations over the next few months. This year’s Seaport programming highlights culture, fashion and food – A Food Lab, a showcase of the latest culinary innovations featuring celebrated resident chefs testing out the future of food; Champagne Garden Bar, featuring lush greenery adorning a pergola that houses a 70-foot outdoor bar that serves premium champagnes and wines; WantedDesign Market, a collection of design centric retail; Seaport Festival of Independence, a curated live music series that kicks off at the Seaport Festival of Independence; and proudly hosting Black Gotham Experience, a project that will be presented as part of the 2017 River To River Festival.
An essential part of New York for over 300 years, the re-envisioned Seaport District will continue to function as a community anchor for the rapidly growing population of Lower Manhattan. The Seaport District invites you to explore what is here today, and looks forward to welcoming you time and again.
