Strong communities provide ample opportunity for individuals, children and families to gather collectively to share experiences. These opportunities usually present themselves in the form of activities with few, if any, barriers to participate. These shared experiences are what knit the fabric of a community together.
Since 2011 — except when Hurricane Sandy stormed into town in 2012 — Harlem Presents has presented “HarlemWeen” — a free, family-friendly costumed festival on the plaza of the Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. (Harlem) State Office Building on Halloween afternoon and evening. Each year, Harlem’s Halloween Festival has grown larger!
Plan to join us on Tuesday, October 31st of 2017 for the sixth annual “HarlemWeen” celebration.
