NYC’s Harlem Week Showcases a Cultural Staple in the City

Whether you’re a local or a tourist, everyone loves to take advantage of NYC summer. This year, NYC’s Harlem Week will be a cultural arts showcase. Great for children and adults, the events begin on July 29th and run until August 25th.

NYC’s Harlem Week has a perfectly on-point theme, “Women Transforming our World, Past, Present & Future,” and a subtheme that’s inclusionary for all: “The Community Within the Community – Saluting the LGBTQ Community”.

This year’s events will highlight the incredible history and African-American culture of this signature NYC community.

Kicking off on the 28th of this month, in Grant Park, with speakers, and a Jazz festival, this event will be fun for all ages.

Vendors from the community will be showing off their handiwork, art, food, and other wares. There may still be space for local vendors and sponsors to join in the fun.

NYC’s Harlem Week is an annual event with more than 100 events happening in the next few weeks. This festival attracts more than 3 million people, joining in to celebrate support the Harlem community.

With an endless array of concerts and musicians showcasing their skills, vendors presenting food from around the world, and crafts and activities, this NYC event is something you can’t miss.

Other than concerts, the event features a “Youth Education and Career Conference & Hackathon,” on July 31st, at the USS Intrepid Museum. There will be speakers, conferences, demonstrations, and dozens of technology-based exhibits.

Other highlights of NYC’s Harlem Week festival include an open-air farmers market, business and health conferences, a children’s festival, higher-ed workshops, activities for senior citizens, and a variety of fashion shows.

All the events center around this year’s theme and celebrate the African, African-American, Caribbean, and Hispanic roots of the neighborhood.

Known as one of the best free events in NYC, Harlem Week is an insight into the core history and culture of the entire city.
