Out To See Festival returns to South Street Seaport

By Nicholas McNallen

This month, the South Street Seaport is being transformed into a showcase of New York City artists and artisans. Every weekend through November 23rd, the Out to See Festival will fill the Seaport with local crafters and makers, live music, thoughtful art, and delicious food. This is the festival's second year: last year, in the follow-up of Hurricane Sandy, neighborhood residents took it upon themselves to celebrate the best of what the historic neighborhood has to offer.

From 11am-5pm each Saturday and Sunday, the fest will host an eclectic assortment of local brands, including Tribe Bicycle Co, The Makery 3D printing workshop, Lululosophy's chocolates, and Etsy's New York Team. Pop-up galleries will also be gracing the Seaport's streets, with works of art placed in under-utilized spaces to call attention to the unique architectural character of the neighborhood. Plus, Self Portrait Project is providing a free photo booth, so patrons can be both model and photographer, art and artist. But that's not all—The festival will also feature musical performances each Saturday from 2-6pm at Cannon's Walk. Featured bands include King Collider, Relations, Batfog, and Glass Rifle.

And if you're in the mood to splurge and get driven to the festival, Uber will provide $30 off for first time users for those who use the service to get there. The already Uber-initiated receive a discount of 10%. Sign up at with promo codes "OUTTOSEE30" and "OUTTOSEE10" for $30 off and 10 percent off.
