Things To Do
Governors Island is an extraordinary and unique destination for transformative public art, unforgettable events, cultural and educational programming and recreational activities for all ages. Traditionally between May and October, Governors Island hosts an impressive roster of programs, exhibitions and activities, presented by the Trust for Governors Island, the National Park Service and the Friends of Governors Island, as well as dozens of diverse organizations from across the five boroughs and beyond.
In fall 2021, the Trust for Governors Island and the City of New York announced that Governors Island will be open to the public year-round beginning in 2021.
