“Git yer Hot Dogs!” “Art galleries right this way!” ” Fresh Vietnamese sandwiches!
Every summer, The Trust opens up Governors Island for inventive programming and delicious food. The combination of great events, a variety of food, and a beautiful park entices visitors to the Island. Last season we had an average of 20,000 visitors every weekend!
This year, the Trust is excited to open over 200,000 square feet of indoor space in our historic buildings for programming, and the Colonels Row Festival Grounds and Nolan Park for outdoor programming. We are also looking for food vendors to submit applications for season long permits or single weekend permits.
We are thrilled to welcome you to our seven day a week expanded access season!
