The festivities will feature 50 of the city’s best food, beverage, merch, and art vendors celebrating the best of Harlem and NY which includes a rich African-American, African, Caribbean, Hispanic, and European, culture, entertainment, and gastronomy.
The vendor list, the majority of which are local minority-owned businesses alongside some of New York City’s all-time favorites, is curated in collaboration with Harlem Park to Park.

The musical lineup for the event is curated in collaboration with Harlem Late Night Jazz, a local arts non-for-profit, and consists of the master conguero Joaquin Pozo, the virtuous saxophonist David Lee Jones with Soul Power Band, and the legendary DJ Stormin Norman.
“We had to postpone the last minute on the original date, which was very upsetting to the community and our partners,” said Executive Producer Marco Shalma. “But we took the time to refocus and go, as they say – go big or go home. This party is going to be insane.”
