The Harlem Arts Festival is a free, performing and visual arts festival that takes place annually in Marcus Garvey Park, Harlem NYC. The festival showcases local performers and visual artists that inspire and nourish the artistic community in Harlem. The Harlem Arts Festival also promotes arts education and literacy by implementing arts-related discussion forums, educational workshops, performance opportunities and activities for youth and family. This project is part of Harlem’s addition to the larger, citywide commitment to provide free art in the public parks during the spring and summer months.
