Harlem Meer Performance Festival 2017

Located at 110th Street near Fifth Avenue within Central Park between Fifth and Lenox Avenues
On more than one occasion yours truly has had the wonderful opportunity to witness what goes on at this locale one year and allow me to tell you! It was quite the occasion! Although the music on each particular night was neither the sort that I’d venture out of my way to purchase nor witness, these performances were wholeheartedly the type that makes one wonder, Gee! What took me so long to experience them in the first place? We’re not guaranteeing that they’ll be your cup of tea but they’re definitely worth investigating at least once.
In the case of inclement weather, concerts will be canceled (no rain dates). For more details, day-of weather-related changes or cancellations and accessibility information, please call 212-860-1370.
