WFUV Events

We know how to throw a party. See below for info about Holiday Cheer for FUV concerts, the On the Record awards, our High Line Bash fundraising party, and the dance parties we host on land or sea (the FUV Boat).

WFUV High Line Bash

Our annual spring fundraising party (during non-pandemic times) is the WFUV High Line Bash — a one-night, multi-stage music and food extravaganza on Manhattan's West Side.  The evening includes performances, food, open bar, spirits tastings, and Joe McGinty's Superstar Piano Bar (live piano karaoke). Read about past celebrations:

The FUV Boat

Once or twice a year (when possible), we sail the rivers around Manhattan, music blasting and folks just carrying on. The city views are jaw-dropping, sunsets and statues and bridges. We've got Facebook Photo Albums from past trips:
