About the event

We extend a warm welcome to our 4th Annual Festival at Bella Abzug Park in Hudson Yards!

The SPRING FLING Arts & Music Festival 2024 will once again take place in 2 PARKS and feature 2 Music Stages, Poetry Slams, Live Art, Food Vendors, and much more! Additionally, on three Saturdays preceding Spring Fling, events will exclusively occur on BLOCK 1. These events will showcase our art, makers, small business market, music performances on our grassy stage and other community activities. With more time to make our presence felt within Bella Abzug Park and a larger community outreach, we hope to Spring Forward this year in NYC!

About the application

PLEASE REVIEW ALL THE INFORMATION ON THE APPLICATION PRIOR TO SUBMITTING
 
We welcome you back to our 4th annual SPRING FLING hosted at the beautiful Bella Abzug Park within the Hudson Yards district of NYC!  
 
Mission + Vision: Our mission is to continue building Bella Abzug Park as an arts and cultural hub for the community. Situated in the burgeoning district of Hudson Yards, the possibilities for our programming are endless.
The success of our extended calendar of programming has resulted in a more substantial socioeconomic impact within the area and the creative community we serve. Last year, sponsors such as Coca-Cola and Liquid Death joined our event, proving that our vision for a larger scale, free-to-the-public arts and music festival is achievable. We are committed to expanding this new hub within New York City, bringing together a community that shares the same passion.
We eagerly anticipate your participation this year as we strive towards new heights.

Our Partners: None of this programming would be possible without the invaluable support of our partners, Hudson Yards Hells Kitchen Alliance. We wholeheartedly endorse their mission and goals for the betterment of the community they serve. Through partnerships and community outreach, HYHK seeks to tangibly promote the role of public art and artists in enhancing public space. By providing access to free world class art, HYHK enriches the physical environment, and highlights the diversity, vibrancy, and unique characteristics of the community.
