Wrapping up the Harlem Arts Festival

A fifth year now the Harlem Arts Festival has come to Marcus Garvey park in Central Park.  And another year it has been a shining example of the local arts scene and a fantastic community event.

The festival brought together over 43 musicians, dancers, singers and entertainers over the 2 day event.  Also represented in the park were over 30 local businesses, artists and restaurants.

5th Anniversary of the Harlem Arts Festival

The Harlem Arts Festival is back at Marcus Garvey Park this weekend (June 25th-26th!)  We covered the festivities last year and it really is a wonderful community event.

You can easily access the park by most NYC subway lines exiting at the 125th street stop and then a short walk.  While you are in the neighborhood be sure to take advantage of some great restaurants, photo opportunities of historic brownstones and the local gallery scene.

Yes, that’s right, my friend the self-portraitist hates being photographed.
