A special message from The Green Festival Team:

Our hearts and thoughts go out to the many families that were affected by the recent tragedy in Boston. We have taken extra security precautions to make the upcoming New York Green Festival a safe and secure event.

The New York City Public Safety Department has instituted additional security procedures, which include checking trucks and vehicles around Javits Center as well as having the NYPD provide additional foot patrols.

Please feel free to come and have a wonderful weekend with us at The Javits Center.
