Hold an Event
As the only large-scale public park in Midtown Manhattan, Bryant Park is a much sought-after location for concerts, product launches, and commercial activations. Bryant Park Corporation (BPC), a non-profit organization, carefully considers proposals for events in the park in light of their potential to support its commitment to free cultural programming for the public.
