There will also be free family-friendly activities indoors and outdoors like corn hole, face painting, balloon animals, coloring, and more. If you’ve been craving a burger from The Library, you don’t even need to go inside! Grab a burger from The Library’s satellite station on the North side of The Public just before the entrance. If you’d prefer a sit-down meal, head inside and enjoy their full menu.


12PM: Join us in Joe’s Pub for a screening of “Joe Papp in Five Acts”

12-4PM: Explore a curated exhibit featuring iconic costumes from past Public Theater productions.

ALL DAY: Take advantage of our cooling station including handheld paper fans, cold water, and great AC!

And so much more! Join us.


Now through July 28—PUBLIC GIVES! Day—help us raise $250,000 to close this year’s revenue gap. PUBLIC GIVES! is a community-wide fundraising drive that culminates at the Block Party. All donations will support The Public’s commitment to provide New Yorkers, regardless of background and geography, with access to dynamic and game-changing theater.
