  • Bronx SalsaFest
    August 3–24
    The streets of the Bronx heat up with the return of SalsaFest, three sizzling weeks of performances, dance parties, movie screenings and neighborhood festivals. A series of free Sunday concerts at Orchard Beach set the tone (Aug. 3, 10, 17, 24), and there should be plenty of live music and dancing at the Casita Maria Festival, which is celebrating its 80th anniversary (Aug. 9). Salsa king and Bronx native Willie Colón plays the Lehman Center for the Performing Arts (Aug. 16); the show is billed as "De Vuelta al Barrio," or "return to the neighborhood," so expect a serious homecoming celebration.
