Know Before You Go: Weekend of October 1 and 2

Bryant Park is the site of the first-ever Roots Picnic NYC, a two-day music festival taking place on October 1 and 2. As this festival makes its first foray into the Big Apple, there are some operational changes we'd like you to be aware of.

If you're not going to the concert...
Sections of the park will be closed to the general public starting Friday at midnight. You can still enjoy a meal at the Bryant Park Cafe or Bryant Park Grill during that time. We expect Wafels & Dinges to be open to the public as well. The Art Cart, on the Fifth Avenue Terrace, will be open from 12:30pm - 6pm. Park operations will return to normal on Monday morning at 7am.

There are still some tickets available for the concert, so click here to purchase if you'd like to attend.

Roots Picnic NYC comes to the park on October 1 and 2.

Enter the park from Sixth Avenue by our Fountain. Ping pongputting and kubb, and Le Carrousel will be open for your enjoyment. Our food kiosks--Le Pain QuotidienCOFFEED, and Southwest Porch will be open for business; additional pop-up food and drink vendors will be present at the concert also. Outside food and drink are prohibited, as well as smoking in the park and bringing chairs from home. Read a full concert FAQ here.
