ABOUT

This fun family event took place throughout Jamaica Bay along the shoreline in Brooklyn and Queens. Attendees enjoyed kayaking, surf casting, hiking, bird watching, art, nature and more.

On July 13, 2019, the Jamaica Bay Festival will return and include even more events and activities. Check back soon for more information on this program. Jamaica Bay offers something for everyone!
