Lower Manhattan is a cultural epicenter with streets peppered with art, music, and history. The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) is keenly aware of this fact, and works to showcase this rich downtown culture. Once a year the council holds the River to River Festival, an eleven-day exhibition of downtown’s hottest artists, musicians, performers, and cultural activities. From June 19 to June 29, thirty five projects featuring over ninety artists will be open to the public at a handful of Lower Manhattan venues and parks. The LMCC hopes the festival will educate, inspire, and bring together people living downtown as well as expose other city dwellers to the treasures of this thriving neighborhood.

Gathered here is the full list of events that will take place over the next eleven days. For more information, visit the festival’s website.
