Randall’s Island Park has a rich history of hosting cultural events and continues to do so today. Throughout the year, RIPA provides numerous free drop-in programs such as walking tours, movie nights, waterfront activities and our annual Cherry Blossom and Harvest Festivals. In addition, large special events, produced by independent organizations other than the City and RIPA, offer visitors a great variety of exciting options – continuing the Island’s strong tradition as a central entertainment venue for New York City.

RIPA hosts over 300 free public events each year. These family-friendly drop-in events play an integral role in helping Park visitors explore the Island’s varied points of interest. For additional information contact our Public Programs team at

CANCELLED – Outdoor Movie Night – Ralph Breaks the Internet (PG)

August 18, 2019 @ 8:00 pm

Due to Inclement Weather our Free Outdoor Movie Night Screening of Ralph Breaks the Internet is CANCELLED. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Video game “bad” guy Ralph and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz embark once again on a misadventure of a lifetime! The two best friends risk it all by traveling to the World Wide Web in search of a replacement part to save Vanellope’s video game, “Sugar Rush.” By traveling through various games and relying on the help of the netizens, the two realize the value of friendship and the true meaning of “friends forever.”

This is a free event! Join us before the movie for games and crafts! Free popcorn while supplies last!

The movie begins at: 8:00PM

Location: Field 81
