International Relations at 92nd Street Y > Diplomatic Outreach > Street Festival: International Way

Street Festival: International Way

Diplomatic friends join us at 92nd Street Y's annual Street Festival, held each September on sixteen blocks of Lexington Avenue. The festival features activities for families and children, information about 92Y programs and International Way, which showcases culture, products and tourism opportunities from a variety of countries.

In 2014, thirteen countries (including eleven diplomatic entities) joined us in a total of 21 booths. Since its inception in 2003, International Way has grown steadily in numbers and diversity, mirroring 92Y's increasingly broad global outreach.
