Fogo Azul — August 24th | Pier 84 at W 44 St.
Fogo Azul NYC is a New York City-based all-women, trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming Brazilian Samba Reggae drum line. The group was born at the intersection of founder Stacy Kovacs’ passion for Samba Reggae, her deep respect for its cultural roots as a music of protest and resistance, her belief and activism in support of gender equality and her sense of civic duty in the current environment to publicly awaken and inspire people to resist oppression and exercise their power to uplift society —loudly.
Exploring Hudson River Park
In addition to pop-up shows, there’s plenty for families to do and see in the park, so it's worth the trip to visit. From May-November, the park offers a jam-packed lineup of fun and family-friendly programming, from Wetlab Look-ins and tours of the Pier 26 Tide Deck to bike lessons for kids and Big City Fishing.
And if you’re into water recreation, the park is a great place to experience aquatic fun! A wide array of free boating and kayaking programs are offered throughout the park at four different boathouse locations. In fact, the park's longest-operating non-motorized boating organization, the Downtown Boathouse, announced this month it had launched its 500,000th kayaker from the Pier 26 Boathouse. That's a lot of kayakers for the boathouse, which was established in 1994.
