April in New York. It’s time to get outside!
Winter in New York isn’t for everybody. Spring, on the other hand, is one of the best times to visit NYC. This year, New York is starting off strong with a bunch of can’t miss events in April. While there is ALWAYS something to do in the city that never sleeps, here are 5 events that we think you should consider traveling to New York for in April.
Tribeca Film Festival | April 18-29
If you’re a true cinephile, you know exactly what the Tribeca Film Festival is. Tribeca Film Festival has been a staple of the indie film and documentary scene for years. You can get a glimpse at the next directors and artists who are going to take Hollywood by storm. If you were around in 2009, you could have seen Ryan Coogler (Director, “Black Panther”) deliver one of his first pieces in the 6 minute short, “Locks”. Who knows what this year will bring?
P!nk at Madison Square Garden | April 4-5
Few artists have encapsulated feminine strength and pride more than Pink. Year after year, she has put up anthems that are both pleasing and full of depth. Her Beautiful Trauma World Tour is making a 2-night stop in Madison Square Garden and this is an event that shouldn’t be missed.
The Orchid Show | March 3 – April 22
Not in the mood for a concert or festival? How about something beautiful and relaxing? That’s where the Orchid Show at New York Botanical Gardens comes into play. The beauty on display is truly something to behold. If you’re needing something colorful to spice up your Instagram feed, this is something that you should definitely check out.
Washington Square Pillow Fight 2018 | April 7
Oh yeah! You read that correctly. April 7 is International Pillow Fight Day and we go all out here in NYC. Grab your favorite fluffy pillow (preferably now stealing any of ours) and head out to Washington Square Park. Every year, people from all over the world bond in some friendly bashing. Not in the mood to be hit in the face with some goose down goodness? That’s fine. You can be one of the hundreds more than just enjoy the people-watching and take pictures.
Street Art Tours | Anytime
An often underrated form of art, graffiti and street art are a part of the culture in New York. From pointed political statements to a living documentation of cultural history; graffiti has been massively influential in New York culture. You can get going on a guided street art tour around the city or do some Googling and find your own destinations to hit up. Either way, you’re sure to be blown away and get your steps in.
