The Met Fifth Avenue
Connect with artists
and community partners from across New York City during The Met's
first-ever block party! This daylong celebration takes place on the iconic
front steps and David H. Koch Plaza, and in the galleries. MetFest honors
the central role of art in our lives and highlights the resilience of New
York City and its people.
On the Plaza
Come together with performances, art-making activities, carnival stilt
walkers, a Double Dutch showcase, and more on the David H. Koch Plaza.
Experience projects and performances by Civic Practice Partnership Artists
in Residence Jon Gray, Miguel Luciano, Mei Lum, and Toshi Reagon. In the Museum
Experience The Met as never before on intimate tours behind gallery walls,
and hear Met experts from across the Museum share their thoughts on their
favorite objects in the collection. Create your own works of art,
participate in a collaborative project, or compose your own acoustic
jewelry—all inspired by The Met collection.

the action on the Plaza and explore activities you can do at home.
