If you're looking for some great family fun, you should check out the DUMBO Arts Festival.  This three day event has so many things for people of all interests (even those that don't particularly like art).  This fun NYC festival displays art from all over the world.  In addition to displaying all these different forms of art, you'll be able to take a look inside an artist's studio while he works.  With plenty of food and kid-friendly activities, this is a wonderful festival for people of all ages.
