We're back again this October 10 with Second Sundays, featuring an amazing lineup of activities, performances, workshops, vendors and installations! Come by Pioneer Works to see a circuit building demo with PW Tech Resident Brian Oakes, learn about the mysterious world of fungi with Smallhold farms, catch a performance by New York freak-folk-jazz collective Uncivilized, and more!

Beginning on September 3, in accordance with the New York City mandate, Key to NYC, visitors (age 12+) must show proof of COVID-19 vaccination to enter Pioneer Works. Please review our updated Health and Safety Policy here.

For the safety of staff and attendees, even with your RSVP, there may be a wait time for entrance to Second Sundays, as we continue to operate with a strictly limited capacity due to Covid-19. Thank you so much for your cooperation in keeping Pioneer Works safe!

Please note, some programming will be held on the second and third floors of Pioneer Works. At this time, we do not have an elevator. Please email for any questions or concerns regarding accessibility.
