City of Water Day: In Your Neighborhood 2021


Click Here to Host an In Your Neighborhood Event



Join Us on the Water Saturday July 10th!
Now in its 14th year, City of Water Day is a free day-long celebration of the waters that surround us. The festival attracts more than 25,000 participants to enjoy our waterways, raise awareness about the risk we all face from sea level rise and climate change, and champion a resilient New York and New Jersey Harbor.

As we continue to live with COVID-19, this year’s City of Water Day will look different than previous years, but with the same goals to educate and inspire. The event will include two primary components to allow for safe and socially distant activities:

  • The Art at the BlueLine exhibition in the Seaport District, will explore the BlueLine—the future high tide line—to collectively highlight the risk we all face from sea level rise and coastal storms. Extraordinary climate artists will provide a unique perspective on climate issues and sea level rise through the lens of artistic expression.
  • Dozens of organizations will be hosting In Your Neighborhood events at their local waterfronts. From free kayaking to rowing to hands-on workshops, In Your Neighborhood events offer throughout our region’s 1600 miles of coastline! Be sure to check out our map to see all of the In Your Neighborhood events taking place throughout the region.

Be a part of it! Join Waterfront Alliance, NY-NJ Harbor and Estuary Program and community organizations from all five boroughs, Westchester and Rockland County, and New Jersey that will make July 10 2021 City of Water Day by signing up to host free safe or virtual community programs on and about local waterfronts.
