NYC Spring Festival Season is Here

Now that the weather is finally breaking 60, it’s time to start thinking about all the fun things to do outdoors here in NYC. If you are looking for something different to get out of your Sagamore apartment, or a weekend event with friends, there are several upcoming festivals around NYC our residents can attend. Here are just a few you can make your way over to this spring.

The World’s Fair: On April 28th and 29th, you can take part in a piece of NYC history by visiting this year’s rendition of the World’s Fair. The iconic festival that took place years ago is being brought back to celebrate the diversity if Queens and NYC through music, food and drinks! Over 100 vendors will be in attendance and there will be a full beer garden with live music. Activities such as Sumo Wrestling and Pizza making classes will be taking place throughout the day.

CoffeeCon: If you’re a coffee lover like most New Yorkers, you won’t want to miss this spring festival taking place next month. Coffee Con will take place for a weekend in May and feature seminars, tastings, coffee making classes and much more that is any caffeine lover’s dream.

Chocolate Fest: The 92Y across the park on the east side will be bringing all chocolate lovers around NYC together in one place. This fest will play host to the biggest and most sweet and savory chocolatier shops and makers around the city, so you can indulge in your sweet tooth. Try a truffle, chocolate ice cream, chocolate vodka and much more at this event.

The Best Festivals Coming to NYC in September  

Summer may be coming to a close, but as The Sagamore residents are well aware, this doesn’t mean that it’s time to hibernate indoors – instead, it’s the perfect time to enjoy the cool, fresh air before snow coats the New York City streets.

Now that the beach weather is over, New Yorkers can look forward to some fun things to do that are right outside their doors in street festivals throughout the city.

Check out these three festivals below that are much more exciting than any day you spent beachside this summer.

The Feast of San Gennaro, which is the city’s longest-running, biggest and most revered religious outdoor festival, will be held from Sept. 15 to Sept. 25. The 11-day festival features religious processions, parades, free musical entertainment and, of course, scrumptious ethnic meals, sweets and wines to be enjoyed by those of any culture.

The New York Coffee Festival, held in the 69th Regiment Armory, will take place from Sept. 16 to Sept. 18, much to the appreciation of caffeine-loving New Yorkers. More than 70 coffee, food and equipment suppliers will be present to provide coffee tastings, interactive workshops and demonstrations.

The Medieval Festival at the Cloisters, held at Manhattan’s Fort Tryon Park on Sept. 18, will take the park back in time as it is transformed into a medieval market full of entertainers and festival goers decked out in traditional garb. Enjoy medieval music, dance, magic, jugglers and jesters – and, of course, a joist – alongside mouth-watering medieval food and drink.
