The Harlem Arts Festival, HAF’s flagship program, occurs annually in Marcus Garvey Park the last weekend of June, and is free and open to the public. The fest showcases each year’s selected performing and visual artists through a number of presentations at the Richard Rodgers Amphitheater, a smaller more intimate constructed 2nd stage, a gallery walk, and in site-specific, curated spaces in the surrounding park area. The fest also features discussion panels, forums, classes, installations, immersive experiences, a kids’ corner, an area for local businesses and food vendors, and more

HAF SESSIONS

HAF Sessions are short intimate performances that occur on regular a basis at venues in and around Harlem. This programming series increases visibility for the festival and its artists, and provides a forum for interaction with the community, local partners, and hopeful artist applicants.

GALA

HAF’s annual gala announces its artist lineup for the coming fest, and brings together HAF’s largest supporters, donors, and sponsors for a wonderful celebration. In addition to presenting a few HAF artists across each discipline, the gala honors 1-2 individuals with the Lynette Velasco Community Impact Award. This award is meant to acknowledge the recipient’s lifelong commitment to Harlem’s artistic and cultural community. More information about the award can be found here.
