Genna Terranova, the festival's Director of Programming, said "We
are excited to continue to build our public programming with a variety
of free exhibitions that celebrate storytelling and innovation and
engage the New York creative community.”
The festival's annual Street Fair will feature the new Tribeca Studios Backlot, which will transform the streets of downtown into an interactive movie set, as well as the Tribeca Food Feast where visitors can watch local chefs cook on a show kitchen stage. The street fair will also include live Broadway performances, puppet shows, and a sneak preview of this summer's upcoming "The Smurfs 2."
"Free events that foster culture and community have long been a cornerstone of the Festival mission," said Peter Downing, Creative Director and Producer, Tribeca Family Festival.
"We are looking forward to once again welcoming families from downtown as well as New Yorkers from across the city to experience the fun and energy of our signature Street Fair and Sports Day, and to introduce new programs like the Tribeca Studios Backlot and Tribeca Food Feast that are sure to delight visitors of all ages."
The festival runs from April 17- 28. See the festival's free events lineup on page 2...
