The 8th annual Yonkers Arts Weekend (YAW) festival is on Saturday, May 21, 2022. The festival is a one-day event, filled with exciting new programs, workshops, exhibitions and more. Since its inception in 2014, YAW has created a prominent arts district in the City of Yonkers. Several city galleries have opened, along with dozens of local and international renowned muralists and artists contributing to the City’s downtown revival. YAW attracts more than 10,000 visitors a year to city galleries, the Carpet Mills Arts District, Hudson River Museum and Untermyer Gardens.
