Bryant Park | Event Proposal

Hold an event in Bryant Park

As the only large-scale public park in midtown Manhattan, Bryant Park is a much sought-after location for concerts, product launches, and many other types of public and private events. With seasonal plantings, neo-classical structures, gravel promenades, and–of course–elegant slatted chairs, the park offers New Yorkers a uniquely European-feeling outdoor space.

Bryant Park has a commitment to serve the public and enhance the neighborhood by providing green space and cultural enrichment. The Bryant Park Corporation (BPC), a non-profit organization, carefully considers proposals for events in the park in light of their potential to support this commitment. Please view our 2016 Events and Sponsorship Guide to see why Bryant Park would be a perfect fit.

Event Proposals

To hold an event in Bryant Park, BPC asks that you submit a proposal with details about your event with adequate time for review. For large-scale events, it is recommended to submit your proposal three to six months prior to your preferred event date(s). Proposals for smaller events may be considered with one to two months of lead time.

Our Event Planning guides provide instructions on how to prepare a complete proposal. Please refer to the map and guidelines if you have any questions. If you have a question that is not answered on the website or in the Event Planning Guide, please contact the events department at or at 917-438-5119.

Complete proposals will be reviewed as soon as possible, usually within one week, at which point one of our events associates will contact you.

Estimated fees cannot be given until a complete proposal has been submitted and reviewed by the Events Department.
