Saturdays & Sundays Through September 29th: Fête Paradiso: Governors Island Festival of Vintage French Carnival Rides & Carousels

Fête Paradiso
Governors Island
10am-6:30pm
Free admission, $3 per ride

Fête Paradiso, the world’s first festival of vintage French carnival rides and carousels, makes American debut on Governors Island. The rare, museum-quality collection, including a full carnival of attractions from the late 19th and early 20th century, such as carousels, flying swings and a pipe organ, is available for the public to ride and enjoy. A bumper car pavilion from 1900 has been transformed into a beer garden, and food reminiscent of a French carnival will be served.

Admission is free; rides cost only $3.00 each. Free ferries will run to Governors Island from Manhattan and Brooklyn.
