Extravaganza with live music, trivia, and amazing interviews

Slate Day 2019

You like Slate. We like you. Let’s spend the day together! On June 8th, Slate Magazine will hold the first-ever Slate Day in NYC: a day of live podcasts, energetic conversations, and fun experiences with our biggest personalities and special guests including First Lady of New York City Chirlane McCray, television personality Miz Cracker, comedian and actress Aparna Nancherla, investigative reporter for The New York Times Magazine Nikole Hannah-Jones, Emmy-award winning writer and comedian Wyatt Cenac, a performance by Yo La Tengo, and many more. We’ll be in the Chelsea Market Passage on the High Line and in the SVA Theatre in Chelsea. Come for the whole day with the all-access pass or just grab tickets for your favorite show. Either way, we can’t wait to see you at Slate Day.

Start the day at our special brunch show with the hosts from Outward and the Waves. Put your pop culture knowledge to the test by joining a trivia team featuring Slate’s culture writers and editors. Go behind the scenes of art with Studio 360, politics with Trumpcast, and culture with Decoder Ring. Bring your kids to the first ever Mom and Dad Are Fighting play date to enjoy some organized chaos with the hosts.
