The Village Trip festival returns for its second year, a four-day celebration of Greenwich Village - West and East - with its worldwide influence on music, theater, visual art, literature and poetry, genre bending performance, and social activism. The Village is where, a century before Starbucks, there was always music in the cafés at night and revolution in the air and where being “different” has always been something to celebrate. For the four festival days, September 26 – 29, the Village will be en fête, with bars, cafés and local stores offering special deals to Village Trippers.
Dine al fresco on West 8th Street with over twenty Greenwich Village restaurants and bars presenting tasting menus, full menus and drinks under a late summer evening sunset. Festive street lighting, live music and outdoor tables and chairs will transform West 8th Street, recreating the celebratory evening-time atmosphere of European, South American and South-East Asian streets, regions influencing the tastes and cuisines of Dinner on 8th Street.
