Schedule of Events:

10:30–11am
Storytime!
Appropriate for ages 3–6, but younger and older siblings are welcome
Join author Gail Carson Levine and translator Liuyu "Ivy" Chen for stories and more in English and Mandarin. Gail Carson Levine is the author of the best seller, Ella Enchanted. Ivy is a writer, translator, co-founder of TransWords.net. A lively 30-minute combination of fun activities and language exploration, storytime will enhance your young child's word skills and vocabulary.

11:30am–12pm & 12:30–1pm
Music Performance
Especially for ages 612
Superhero Clubhouse presents two performances. The FairWeathers is a comedic trunk show about a curmudgeonly clown who just can't make peace with the changing environment. Like a cartoon, the show is a series of short episodes in which Mr. or Mrs. FairWeather, just trying to go about their lives, are confronted with the environmental consequences of their behavior, to great comedic effect.

Mr. FairWeather Gets Thirsty is inspired by our interconnected waste and water system. Distrusting of the tap and frustrated by recycling bins, Mr. FairWeather's bottled water deliveries result in a mountain of trash and plastic in his fish.

In Mr. FairWeather's Garden, our clown's attempt to avoid the grocery store and grow his own food turns into hilarious chaos as extreme weather reeks havoc.

10am–1pm
ArchForKids Art Making
Art making is appropriate for families of all ages and abilities. Children with special needs are encouraged to come make art with us.

It is the year 2038, twenty years in the future — what does NYC look like? Create a wildly imaginative futuristic city collaboratively with other families. Work together to design and create solutions to challenges, such as climate change and affordable housing, that we must work together to change. By the end of the day, what will our new future look like?


10am–1pm
On View
Each month, artists from Superhero Clubhouse will create an installation to transform our space based on our monthly theme. Look for surprises on every corner — they pop up for one day only!

10am–1pm
Mobile Garden
All ages
Learn about plants from a High Line Gardener! Each month we will have a new, hands-on activity based on our theme. Families will also be able to observe and touch our worms!


All children must be attended by a caregiver at all times.

This program is held rain or shine.
