FoST FEST will take place from October 7–9 at the top of the city’s historic Museum Mile at 1280 Fifth Avenue, across the street from Central Park. The main exhibition space, the FoST Playground, is designed to delight and engage the senses of participants, and will showcase new technologies like virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality, and artificial intelligence, alongside more analog forms of participatory entertainment, such as immersive theater, live-action role-playing, and interactive cinema. The Playground will also feature interactive games, full-body immersive experiences, one-of-a-kind-performances, hands-on tech demos, conversation panels with some of the biggest names in entertainment, design, and technology, and a multiperson VR theater. Additionally, FoST FEST will present screenings, panels, and a Community Day.
