Billed by festival organizers as New York's biggest block party, the Museum Mile Festival in New York City is a mile-long celebration of art and culture.

The festival is held annually, usually on an evening in June on the second Tuesday of the month, Stretching along Fifth Avenue between 82nd and 105th (which is roughly a mile) the streets are closed off to cars — and for at least one special evening — the whole mile becomes a stroller's heaven.

This year, the landmark 40th annual Museum Mile Festival is scheduled for Tuesday, June 12, 2018 from 6PM — 9PM, rain or shine.

The first Museum Mile Festival was held in 1978 with the aim of letting people experience the many museums along 5th Avenue, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Design Museum, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum — with FREE admission to all.

Yet museums certainly aren't the only attraction!

Many of the museums also provide art related activities for kids, and musicians and bands of various flavors can be found playing everywhere along the avenue. The festival also plays host to a variety of street performers who entertain crowds up and down the mile stretch.
