April 26, 2014 - 10:00AM to 6PM

The Tribeca Family Festival once again invites you to the ultimate street fair and family celebration, where a dazzling array of FREE activities, performances and experiences unfold downtown in Tribeca.

Step onto the Tribeca Studios backlot and into a filmmaking experience, watch a live chef demonstration from a local restaurant, fly a kite, play video games in the Games for Change Public Arcade, create life-size bubbles in the Bubble Garden, get creative in our Arts & Crafts pavilions, dance to live music and put a smile on your face. It's time to take to the streets of the neighborhood, so join us for a special day of fun!

Our Festival stages will feature special performances from current Broadway shows along with emerging talent from right here in Tribeca. Local restaurants and merchants will offer Tribeca's finest foods, refreshments, and merchandise. Families can also attend free screenings.

Check out the Tribeca Film Festival from a kid's point of view!
Go behind the "screens" and onto the red carpet with our Tribeca Kids Access student reporters. Come along as they ask the tough questions, pose with the stars and blog all about it.
The Tribeca Kids Access team is a talented group of 5th- through 8th-graders from downtown schools who ask the (tough and silly) questions for YOU!
