Spring Fair

An Upper West Side institution, The Hippo Playground Spring Fair features pony rides, bouncy castles, petting zoo, games, prizes, food, entertainment and more.

For 35 years, the Spring Fair has been the primary fundraiser to support The Hippo Playground. This year we are raising money to fund free activities (Art in the Park, our Free Summer Concert Series, and the Halloween Parade, etc.); new equipment for Hippo Playground and a new water feature at the 142nd Street playground.

How Can You Help?

Volunteer — The success of the Fair depends on hundreds of volunteers. It is a great way to give back to the playground. Pass out hot dogs, guide children through the maze or petting zoo. The shifts are 3 hours long. SIGN UP HERE: https://riversideparknyc.org/fairvolunteers/

Baked Goods — We need 30 dozen cupcakes. Email us at hippoplaygrounduws@gmail.com to let us know you are baking cupcakes and then drop them off the day before or the morning of the Fair.

Spread the Word — Tell your friends and neighbors about our beautiful playground and our fabulous Spring Fair.  Follow us on FacebookTwitter and Instagram.

Please contact us at hippoplaygrounduws@gmail.com if you have any questions/comments.

Rain date: Sunday May 20, 2018.
