DayLife is a FREE 3-block special event that covers Orchard Street in astroturf and pushcarts, and includes the best in LES food and fashion vendors.

DayLife  also features activities such as free DJ lessons from Scratch DJ Academy, badminton, urban croquet, face-painting and two full stages of DJs, such as Kai Song and Deja NYC, bands, such as The Hits, DJ Small Change, and Swaii Boys, and live acts such as Norman Vladimir, Lewis Lazar and Catey Shaw, all from our friends at The Living RoomTammany Hall, and The Leadbelly, and  Lost Weekend NYC . Check out last year’s event video HERE.

You can check out more photos from past events on our Facebook page and meet previous DayLife vendors with this series of interviews on our YouTube channel. Thanks to our friends at SQUARE, all DayLife vendors will be outfitted with on-the-spot transaction capabilities. Pop over to our DayLife press page and see what outlets such as Daily Candy, Urban Daddy, and the New York Times had to say about DayLife in June 2012.
