Harlem Week


Hope. Joy. Love.

HARLEM WEEK is an annual celebration of the best of Harlem which works to promote its rich African-American, African, Caribbean, Hispanic, and European history, as well as arts, culture, religion, business, entertainment, and sports.
Harlem Week began in 1974 as HARLEM DAY, a one-day event of encouragement and fellowship in Harlem for New Yorkers and beyond.
Given the huge success of the celebration, additional days were added to showcase the community’s rich economic, political, and cultural history. During our 49 years of producing Harlem Week, the event has grown from a one-day event to a month-long festival and now, as a 10-day live and virtual event.
We look forward to you joining us this year to experience the 49th Annual HARLEM WEEK as we celebrate with our theme: Inspiration.
