  • 67th Annual Fence Show

    and Musical Chairs Chamber Ensemble Open Air Music Festival  

    Rain date: September 17

    For the 67th year, the Staten Island Museum is keeping their bucolic tradition alive. Thousands will gather to see the conventional, the abstract, and the extraordinary on the grounds of Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Gardens with the newly restored Staten Island Museum at Snug Harbor as a backdrop.

    Free to the public.

    For the past four years, we have been treated to the Musical Chairs Chamber Ensemble’s Open-Air Music Festival and again this year you're invited to enjoy the original music during the show.

    Artists applications now available here.
