Family Performance Festival
June 15 - August 31, 2014
Every Sunday, 12:00 pm
Programs are free and between 60 - 90 minutes long.
The Children's Glade and its ongoing maintenance and care are made possible by the Directors of the Peter Jay Sharp Foundation.
Each summer, the Conservancy hosts a series of eco-education and multicultural performances for the whole family to enjoy. Formerly known as A Clearing in the Forest, this year's Family Performance Festival is chock-a-block full of fun and learning through music, storytelling, in-Park adventure, puppetry, and more! Programs happen in the Park's most natural playground, The Peter Jay Sharp Children's Glade (located inside the Park near West 106th Street). Pack a picnic, grab your blanket, and get ready to discover Central Park in a whole new way!
Advance registration is recommended; All ages welcome. In the case of inclement weather programs will be canceled. For more information, click on the links below. For day-of weather-related changes and accessibility information, call 212-860-1370 or check the event on our online calendar.
