Our Local History Creates A Global Impact
Harlem, the world-renowned cultural capital of Black and Hispanic America, deserves to have a first-class music festival. Harlem’s reputation in music is known throughout the world and its local musical history has definitely created a global impact.
Harlem Jazz & Music Festival will feature indoor and outdoor concerts, gospel services at select houses of worship, jazz brunches, nite club events at famous venues and much more.
It is highly anticipated that the Harlem Jazz & Music Festival will in upcoming years, attract hundreds of thousands to New York City in general, and to Harlem in particular, as the word of this incredible cultural experience carries throughout the region, the nation, and beyond.
The festival is proudly co-presented by HARLEM WEEK and West Harlem Development Corporation.
