Come Out & Play is happy to announce that we're turning New York City into a playground yet again! The festival will run from June 12-14. The Tank, a wonderful non-profit arts space, will play host and serve as our central headquarters. This gives all Come Out & Players easy access to nearly every subway line, Times Square, Hudson River piers and pedestrian greenways along the West Side Highway, and of course Manhattan's crown jewel - Central Park. We're going to have such a great time!
We're still working on the details, but the format will be similar to previous years. We promise you lots of amazing street games, good company, and awesome parties. The cream of the crop turns out every year to run and play games in the streets of New York during this festival. We're very excited to have you join us!
We're accepting game submissions for the 2009 Festival through April 19. Applicants will be notified about their acceptance status by May 3, and we'll begin posting the games and weekend schedule shortly thereafter. Questions related to submissions can be directed to Catherine Herdlick, this year's Festival Director, via email (cherdlick(at)comeoutandplay(dot)org) or phone (917-821-3078).
Also, consider signing up to volunteer at the festival. Our volunteers are the best ambassadors for play in the whole world and we couldn't pull off the weekend awesomeness without their help.
Finally, we're always looking for interested sponsors to help defray the costs that running a festival like this incurs. Please get in touch with Catherine if you or your organization would like to contribute goods, services, or money to the festival this year. You can reach her at cherdlick(at)comeoutandplay(dot)org or at 917-821-3078.
