Join us for The Met’s first-ever block party!
Connect with artists and community partners from across the five boroughs during a daylong celebration on the iconic front steps and David H. Koch Plaza and in the galleries. Come together with live music, performances, art-making activities, behind-the-scenes tours, carnival stilt walkers, a citywide Double Dutch showcase, and more. MetFest honors the central role of art in our lives and highlights the resilience of New York City and its people.
