Tribeca Festival will hose “De Niro Con,” a three-day fan event in celebration of Robert De Niro’s 80th birthday. The events will take place at Spring Studios in New York City from September 29 - October 1, 2023.

The multi-day fan experience will feature special appearances by De Niro himself, along with recreations of iconic film sets, immersive installations, classic film screenings, musical performances, and panel conversations. It will also include special appearances from co-stars and frequent collaborators. The full programming lineup will be announced this summer.

“De Niro Con” was announced at a private ceremony at the Tribeca Grill ahead of the 2023 Tribeca Festival opening night. New York City Mayor Eric Adams presented De Niro with a key to New York City for his service to supporting arts and activism. Other guests in attendance included Martin Scorsese, Matt Damon, Zazie Beetz, Mark Ruffalo, Brendan Fraser, Dianna Agron, Billy Porter, Julian Schnabel, Debra Messing, Noah Centineo, Piper Perabo, and New York Nico.

De Niro is a Hollywood titan with countless awards and accolades, including two Academy Awards and a Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award. Born and raised in Greenwich Village, De Niro established Tribeca Productions from a small coffee warehouse alongside his longtime producing partner Jane Rosenthal in the 1990s.

Other De Niro projects include the Tribeca Grill, Nobu, and Locanda Verde restaurants, The Greenwich Hotel, and the Tribeca Film Center. In 2001, De Niro founded the Tribeca Festival with Rosenthal to spur the economic and cultural revitalization of lower Manhattan following the attacks on the World Trade Center, as well as the first hotel in the neighborhood in the wake of the September 11 attacks.
