WHAT IS THE SI WATERFRONT FESTIVAL?

The SI Waterfront Festival is a not-for-profit organization that has been producing a variety of arts and entertainment events on Staten Island since 2002.

Modeled on the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s River to River Festival project, we produce and support a variety of public events featuring exhibits by local artists and performances by emerging musicians and other entertainers. We also include environmental education and children’s activities within some of these events, as well as a marketplace for artists, craftspeople & businesses to showcase and sell their products and services.

Many of our events are held in underserved communities, and all are designed to make Staten Island a better place to live, work & play.
