Empire Outlets, New York City’s first and only outlet destination center, will be host a three-day July 4th Block Party event this year. The new outlet space, designed by SHoP Architects, will offer guests extensive programming for the entire family, music from live DJs and bands, and food. The festivities will be enhanced with prime seating for harborside fireworks put on by Empire Outlets at 9:00PM on the fourth.

The entire block party will last three days, from July 4th through July 6th. Throughout all three days there will be roaming street performers and programmed activities like a tie-dye workshop, sidewalk chalk art, face painting, large scale sandcastle building, and an outdoor screening of a featured Americana film to be announced.
