Museum Mile Festival
June 11 , 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Now celebrating its 41st year, the annual Museum Mile Festival invites attendees to walk the mile on 5th Ave. while visiting seven of New York City’s finest cultural institutions, which are open free to the public throughout the evening. There is something for everyone at each of the venues, from special exhibitions to live music and art-making workshops (plus outdoor art activities for children).
The opening ceremony takes place at 5:45 p.m. at El Museo del Barrio (1230 5th Ave. at 105th St.), and is traditionally opened by the Commissioner of Cultural Affairs and other city and state dignitaries.
Rain or shine.
