Adventures NYC Festival returns with Nike training sessions, rock climbing and more

Everything is free to do, whether you paddleboard, climb or train.

Zip line across Central Park this Saturday at the 14th annual Adventures NYC Festival, where outdoor thrills take over the bandshell for the day.

The free festival turns the area into an urban adventure playground from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine, by bringing in a zip line, a rock wall, paddle boards and key log rolling to the water and lessons and challenges by sports professionals.

Here’s some of what you can expect:

  • Yoga
  • Obstacle races
  • Outdoor survival training
  • Rod and reel skills
  • Red Bulls soccer challenge
  • Karate lessons
  • Stand-up paddleboarding
  • Key log rolling
  • Zip lining
  • Rock climbing
  • Free bike valet parking
  • Nike Training Club live sessions

The Nike Training Club sessions with Ariel Foxie will focus on conditioning while sessions with Ashley Wilking will include a boxing-inspired HIIT workout. You’ll need to RSVP for these if you want to take part.

While you’re there, you’ll need to sign waivers just in case.
