2019 Feast of San Gennaro in Little Italy, NYC

September 12 – 22, 2019

The festivities are held along Mulberry Street from Canal to Houston Streets, as well as on Hester and Grand Streets between Mott and Baxter Streets.

This festival has always been a favorite of yours truly as well as of so many other New Yorkers.

Annual Feast of San Gennaro, Food, games, rides, concessions, entertainment, parade, and religious procession at this well-loved festival in Little Italy. Indoor and outdoor dining at 35 of Little Italy’s most famous Italian restaurants. More than 300 licensed street vendors selling international foods, and souvenirs.

The street festivities – including parades, entertainment, food stands and a cannoli-eating contest – are capped on with a celebratory Mass and candlelit procession as the Statue of the Saint is carried from its permanent home in Most Precious Blood Church on Mulberry Street.

BTW, if you’re a merchant interested in participating at the festival then have a look at Mort & Ray’s website to learn about applications, costs and such.

27th Annual London Terrace Street Fair – 2019
Sep 21 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

27th Annual London Terrace Street Fair

September 21, 2019
10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Rain or Shine!

West 24th St between 9th and 10th Avenue

Look below for their official flyer

The 27th Annual London Street Fair is coming up on Saturday, September 22, 2018.  We like to call ourselves “The Best Little Street Fair in Manhattan”.  It is not your usual commercially run fair.

There will be a myriad of vendors: artists selling their own work, dealers of antiques, clothing, jewelry, furniture, clothing, collectibles of all sorts, records/CDs/DVDs, comic books, tchotchkes (big and small), and a children’s face painter from 12 noon-3pm.  Adults are welcome for face painting as well, there is nothing like a grown man with cat whiskers and glitter.

The street fair will start at 10am and run till 5pm, and is on 24th Street between 9th and 10th Avenue.  Don’t forget the date either, Saturday September 21, 2019.  It is a neighborhood gathering, with families and friends spending time together beneath a canopy of trees, as the leaves are starting to change color.  We consider it our way of welcoming the Autumn season.  Those visiting New York from all over the world show up to see the neighborly hospitality that West Chelsea has to offer.

So, don’t think twice or make other plans.  This is the place to be, and all are welcome.  Hope to see you there!

NYHC Fall Event to Feature Hands-on MultiCrafts Demos and Popup Market @ Grand Bazaar

NYHC Fall Event to Feature Hands-on MultiCrafts Demos and Popup Market @ Grand Bazaar | New York | New York | United States

New York Handmade Collective (NYHC) Joins Grand Bazaar For “Hands-On!” Multi Crafts Demonstrations & Pop-Up Market

Sunday, September 29, 2019

Unique Fall shopping experience will feature live demos and a juried selection of one-of-a-kind, exclusively handcrafted, locally made, artisanal crafts and accessories.

The New York Handmade Collective (NYHC) — formerly known as the Etsy NY Street Team — in partnership with the Grand Bazaar NYC — will welcome Fall with hands-on, multi crafts demonstrations and a pop-up market. This unique shopping experience of live outdoor craft demos and a dynamic handcrafted product showcase of the NYHC’s local talent, will take place on Sunday, Sept. 29, from 10:00 am to 5:30 pm, at the popular shopping destination located at 100 West 77 Street and Columbus Avenue.

“Grand Bazaar NYC firmly believes in supporting local artists, designers and craft-makers, which helps keep our city vibrant and creative,” said Marc Seago, Executive Director at Grand Bazaar NYC. “We’re thrilled that the NY Handmade Collective will once again be joining us for this exciting Fall shopping experience.”

Shoppers will discover a diverse selection of outstanding, one-of-a-kind, exclusively handcrafted merchandise created by over 40 talented, multi-disciplined artisans and designers from the New York metropolitan area. The vast array of exceptional goods will run the gamut from fine art, eye-catching stationery, unusual jewelry, distinctive fashions, home decor and amazing skincare products to items for children and pets.

“This season’s new and improved market offers a rare opportunity to go behind-the-scenes, shop and watch the hands-on creation of unique products from our cadre of diverse, talented local artisans,” said Andi B. O’Connor, co-organizer. “Situated within the long-established Upper West Side market that is the Grand Bazaar NYC, the NYHC Show will highlight the value of quality handmade crafts in today’s society when so much is mass-produced and disposable.”

The Importance of Handmade

Recently NYHC surveyed over 200 artisans to gather impressions and data on the importance of quality handmade products. At this season’s show, NYHC will have a table with information and materials on this subject, staffed by members who can answer visitors’ questions. For example,creators of handcrafted goods are part of a community dedicated to connecting with customers and bringing back the personal touch that is so rare in today’s digital global marketplace.

Other survey findings:

Handmade products tend to be of higher quality, singular and authentic, reflecting rich cultures and traditions and an eco-friendly, sustainable, environmental awareness that is present in these artisans’ practices and processes. Handcrafted items also nurture creativity and individuality and perpetuate the art of crafting. In addition, handmade products are beautiful, one-of-a-kind and well-made. As a result, they tend to be more valuable and durable than mass-produced, disposable items.

About NYHC:

Founded in 2007 and representing one of the oldest, largest and most professionally organized teams of local active sellers on Etsy, Inc., the NYHC has cultivated a long-established, local presence in the NYC metro area by hosting a number of successful and highly curated in-person markets, workshops and events: Holiday Handmade Cavalcade, Crafts in Chelsea, and Celebrate Brooklyn, to name a few. NYHC is also known for its all-volunteer organization dedicated to the promotion and marketing of online selling opportunities on behalf of its members through its wide-ranging press outreach, expansive social media presence, informative blogs and beautiful website.

About Grand Bazaar NYC:
