The NYC Poetry Festival was founded to give diverse artists a large public platform, and every July, this two-day multi-stage extravaganza takes Governors Island by storm. Over 250 poets from 60 poetry societies unite for a weekend of disruptive art - no topic is off-limits. Children are encouraged to perform as well.  Tickets are free, and the festival accepts art submissions.  Open 11 am to 5 pm each day.

Take the Manhattan Ferry from the Battery Maritime Building (10 South Street). Or take the Brooklyn Ferry from Pier 6 (Brooklyn Bridge Park).

Colonels Row, Clayton Road, New York, United States
