July 27–August 24
What began in 1974 as a one-day tribute to Harlem has evolved into a monthlong celebration of the community's rich economic, political and cultural history. From children's festivals to a college fair to the New York City Senior Citizens Day "Elders' Jubilee," there is a diverse range of events for residents of the neighborhood and beyond. Don't miss the official kickoff, "A Great Day in Harlem," on July 28 at the General Grant National Memorial in Riverside Park; Harlem Day on August 18; and the Percy Sutton Harlem 5K Run/Family Health Walk-A-Thon on August 24.
