We Are Melrose: Harvesting Culture

  • East 160th Street between Bronx, NY United States (map)

Block Party takeover on 160th Street between Melrose and Elton Avenues for a celebration of our Bronx with community, culture, and fun!

This family-oriented festivity will include music, poetry, canvas painting, activities in the local community garden, a visual exhibition, retro game-play, face-painting for children, and live performances. This year our thematic acknowledges the contributions of women pioneers who have played a major role in the development and positive growth of the South Bronx, as well as today's young shining stars, with an awards ceremony honoring their legacies (list in formation).

Poetry by Mariposa, Natalie N. Caro, Yoseli Castillo, Carmen Bardeguez-Brown.
Performances by It's Showtime NYC Dancers and Los Pleneros de la 21.
