Join us on Saturday, July 15 from 12p-4p for the Bronx River Living Festival, in celebration of City of Water Day 2023, at Starlight Park! *Please note, this event’s location has changed to Starlight Park due to emergency construction taking place at Concrete Plant Park during July*

This fun, free, family-friendly event will be a celebration of our waterfront park, and an opportunity to participate in dialogue about our community’s resiliency in the face of climate change.

The Festival will include:

  • Canoeing paddle-and-pick-up: Participants help clean up the Bronx River, while on a guided canoe tour to learn more about this incredible natural resource and ways to protect, improve, and restore it. Spots are limited, find more information below.
  • Native Plant ID Walk: Learn about the native plants of the Bronx River, and how to identify them.
  • Hydration Station: Enjoy teas made with local plants from the Bronx River Foodway, and learn how to make your own!
  • Eastern Woodlands Exhibit: Learn how local indigenous people lived along the Bronx River for thousands of years.
  • Community Art Project about the life of the Bronx River
  • Informational tabling for the Bronx River Watershed Plan: Help develop a Climate Resiliency Plan for the Bronx River.
  • Healing Drumming Circle
  • Live Music
  • educational tabling from partners and more!

No registration is required, unless you’d like to participate in the Paddle-and-Pick-Up (space is limited for safety). To find more information and register for the paddle-and-pick-up, click here.
