The official PoC Tumblr Meetup initiative‡ is set to come together again, for AFROPUNK FESTIVAL 2013!
AFROPUNK FEST is back in Brooklyn this August for another weekend of live music, vibrant art and good vibes. Included, over 26 of New York City’s best food trucks, a skate park free of cops on patrol and a custom bike show hosted by Brooklyn Rhapsody.
Described by the New York Times as “the most multicultural festival in the US,” the word AFROPUNK itself has become synonymous with open-minded, non-conforming and unconventional, placing the institution at the epicenter of urban culture inspired by alternative music.

  • Harlem Week promotes and celebrates what Harlem was, is and will be!  Comprised of a series of events throughout the summer, open to all age groups and cultures to celebrate the unique and diverse essence of Harlem.  This celebration of Harlem offers over 100 events, most of which can be seen in the calendar listed below. 

    HARLEM WEEK CALENDAR OF EVENTS

We hope to see y’all there!  There will be tons to do, so come on out and enjoy your city (we pay too much in city & state tax not to).   If you can’t make it, there is always the next Poc Meet @ AfroPunk next weekend!

**NOTE: Tomorrow’s events begin at 12PM and run until 7PM.  Feel free to come earlier if you wish.  Harlem Week also runs until the 24th of August.

The official PoC Tumblr Meetup initiative‡ is set to come together again, for AFROPUNK FESTIVAL 2013!
AFROPUNK FEST is back in Brooklyn this August for another weekend of live music, vibrant art and good vibes. Included, over 26 of New York City’s best food trucks, a skate park free of cops on patrol and a custom bike show hosted by Brooklyn Rhapsody.
Described by the New York Times as “the most multicultural festival in the US,” the word AFROPUNK itself has become synonymous with open-minded, non-conforming and unconventional, placing the institution at the epicenter of urban culture inspired by alternative music.
