Stroll through kiosks of amazing artists! Each exhibitor is selected by a council of fellow artists based on the work they will be displaying.

Museum Mile Festival
When: 6-9PM June 14th
One of the perks of living in New York, or visiting, is the abundance of incredible museums. It’s easy to take for granted, but we have access to some of the greatest works of art of all time. The Museum Mile Festival is an opportune night to make your way through the seven museums located on Museum Mile, aka that stretch of 5th Ave. with all the big buildings. You’ll see El Museo del Barrio, Musueum of the City of New York, The Jewish Musueum, Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Neue Galerie, and, of course, The MET. They have activities and food to accompany your museum-hopping. More info here:
NYC Craft Beer Festival
Where: Lexington Avenue Armoury
When: June 17th & 18th
We are all about a craft beer. While slightly uneducated, that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate it! The NYC Craft Beer Festival is the perfect way to learn a little bit about beer so that you can, for once, make an educated order at the bar, instead of ordering something “that’s not too heavy.” With 75 breweries serving up 150 beers and ciders, you’ll be a pro by the time you leave. You and your complimentary tasting glass will develop a very intimate relationship, given that there is unlimited 2oz tastings of everything. For ticket information, visit the website here.
So many June events! Did we miss anything? An underground concert? A pop-up shop? Comment below! Friends share, right?
