Watch fascinating demonstrations by a Hebrew and a Chinese scribe, Puerto Rican mask maker, and other folk artists. Learn how to braid challah bread, roll dumplings and craft empanadas. Or try your hand at crafts including yarmulke making, mask making, lace making and more. You can also go head-to-head with community mavens in a fierce game of mah jongg.

Summer Solstice is the longest and most light-filled day of the year. Mark this midsummer phenomenon with art-making workshops and activities from The Noguchi Museum, Free Style Arts Association, and The Blue Bus Project, and join artist / storyteller Satya Celeste to transform the grove of trees into a communal art piece. On stage, they'll feature youth performances from 696 Build Queensbridge, and Secret Society Dance Company choreographed by Traequan Middleton representing Astoria Houses’ HANAC Cornerstone. Afterwards, catch Queens native and vocal artist/performer STEFA*’s powerful sonic layering and vocal improvisations, followed by an all women drum ensemble Batalá New York’s high-energy Afro-Brazilian rhythms. At sunset, gather around the hill for Urban Shaman Mama Donna’s annual waterfront Solstice ritual uniting all in reverence and positive energy.

Artist Erwin Wurm has transformed a vintage Volkswagen Microbus into an overstuffed food truck serving free dogs! It's an absurd, yet approachable art experience that will encourage visitors to rethink the fundamental definitions of sculpture. Wurm's choice of the hot dog hints at the gastronomic connections between the City’s most iconic street food and his Austrian homeland, while he considers the act of eating to be an additive sculptural process in its own right.
