Jamaica Bay Festival
Get to know the other side of Rockaway!
As part of City of Water Day, come celebrate the inaugural Jamaica Bay Festival – a fun family event taking place throughout Jamaica Bay along the shoreline in Brooklyn and Queens. Enjoy kayaking, surf casting, hiking, bird watching, art, nature and more. Jamaica Bay offers something for everyone!
The Main Festival Area is located at Beach 108th Street and Beach Channel Drive at our Rockaway Ferry Landing. Check out the list of events happening below. We’re happy to support the festival by providing free shuttle bus service to the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge tour at 11am (bus departs at 10:45am from B 108th Street) and for the Dead Horse Bay Hike at 1pm (bus departs at 12:45pm from B 108th Street).
