Summer in NYC wouldn't be complete without one of its longest running events, Harlem Week.

Celebrate Harlem's rich history and enjoy outdoor stages full of live entertainment, showcasing the sounds of Reggae, Latin, Gospel, and R&B to Hip-Hop, Rock, Blues, and Calypso. 

Also, take delight in the unique variety of vendors selling everything from food and clothing to that perfect art piece you've been searching for. All promoting Harlem’s lineage of African, African-American, Caribbean, Hispanic and European history, through culture, arts, religion, and entertainment.

Make your summer complete and make sure you join WBLS as we celebrate Harlem Week!
