Park Avenue Day 2024 Details

Thank you for your interest in participating in Park Avenue Day 2024, taking place on Saturday, May 18th, between 10am to 5pm. We’re expecting 50,000+ attendees with over 100+ different vendors including art, fashion, food, shopping, and more!

Please see details below for more information about the experience.

This year we will debut the latest sculptures on Park Avenue by Bruno Catalano. This will be Bruno’s first major public art installation in the U.S., and Bruno himself will be conducting tours and experiences throughout the entire day. Additionally, there will be dance performances on Park Avenue to celebrate the opening. This will be highlight of this year’s Park Avenue Day experience.

Secure your Spot!

Spots are available for free for Murray Hill Neighborhood Association business members.

Upon registering (you can register here), you will be given a 10′ x 10′ spot on Park Avenue, anywhere between 34th and 40th Streets. The West side of Park Avenue (all 3 lanes) will be void of vehicles and only accessible by pedestrians (there will still be vehicular traffic through the cross streets). The placement of your spot will be determined on the day before the event to maximize the experience for everyone. Additionally, you may rent a 10′ x 10′ tent, 6′ table, and 2 chairs from us for an additional fee. This will be fully set-up for you in the morning and also taken down at the end of the day. We are not offering anything other than the spot, if you require electricity, you may bring your own generator.

See below what the tent, table, and chairs set-up looks like.

Additionally, trustees of the Murray Hill Neighborhood Association will be participating including members of our committees including Membership, Preservation & Design, and more.
