For the first time ever, spend the night on Governors Island! 


Thanks to Collective Retreats, you can now make a deluxe weekend destination out of the New York City Poetry Festival! A quick ferry ride from downtown Manhattan, Collective Governors Island is a peaceful oasis nestled in the hills of the island, surrounded by sprawling green spaces, with unparalleled views of the Statue of Liberty across the New York Harbor. The retreat includes the communal Three Peaks Lodge with dining and group activities, a collection of luxury Summit Tents with king beds and en-suite bathrooms, and an array of premium Journey Tents featuring queen beds (or two twins) and shared bathrooms.

The Poetry Society of New York and Collective Retreats are partnering this summer to offer New York City Poetry Festival attendees a discounted weekend rate of $350 for a Journey Tent ($50 discount) or $1,250 for a Summit Tent ($250 discount) with check-in on Friday, July 27th and checkout on Sunday, July 29th. To book your luxury weekend getaway with #NYCPOFEST, feel free to purchase one of our VIP festival packages through Eventbrite, or, if you'd simply like to request a tent for the weekend, fill out the form below, and we'll get back to you with booking details. 

PLEASE NOTE: Bookings must be made by Sunday, June 10th. After that date, the discount will no longer be available, and these tents will be released for the public to book. The season is nearly sold out already, so once they are released to the public, they will likely sell out right away. If you're are interested in staying overnight on the island, book soon!
