HARLEM WEEK 2019 proudly commemorates its 45 years of continued service to the Village of Harlem and New York. We are excited to celebrate what is known as “The World’s Longest Week” from Sun., July 29th thru Sat., August 31st encompassing over 110 events. HARLEM WEEK, from its inception as HARLEM DAY in 1974, has always been about showcasing and saluting the best of Harlem. In observance of HARLEM WEEK’s 45th anniversary, the Board of HARLEM WEEK selected 45 extraordinary icons whose local history has had a global impact, to represent this year’s theme.

Beginning in August, New York and specifically the community of Harlem will join in partnership with Memphis, Tennessee to honor Memphis’ 200th anniversary. The two iconic regions will come together to kickoff “A New Century of Soul” including salutes to Memphis music icons & Stax recording artists (Isaac Hayes, Lalah Hathaway, Otis Redding, BB King, The Staple Singers and more) and “A Taste of Memphis & Harlem” foods, which will occur at selected Harlem eateries from Aug. 12th thru Aug. 18th. The biggest day of HARLEM WEEK is HARLEM DAY, Sunday, August 18th!

Closing out the festivities this year will be the 1st Harlem Jazz & Music Festival (HJ&MF) from Sat., Aug. 24th through Sat., Aug. 31st. This much anticipated regional festival is co-sponsored by HARLEM WEEK and the West Harlem Development Corporation in concert with The Greater Harlem Chamber of Commerce, I Love NY, NYC & Company, Empire State Development, Harlem Community Development Corporation, Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone, Harlem Arts Alliance and Jazzmobile. HJ&MF will feature indoor and outdoor jazz concerts, live performances, jazz brunches and nite club entertainment.

HARLEM WEEK 2019 will also include our business, health, art and technology regional summits, indoor/outdoor expos, concerts, children’s festivals, Harlem “Spelling Bee”, Senior Citizens events, Harlem Restaurant Week, Pride celebrations, salutes to the 400th Anniversary of Blacks in America, sporting events, film festivals, upper Manhattan Auto show, fashion shows, block parties and sooo much more.

The theme for HW 2018 was WOMEN TRANSFORMING OUR WORLD: Past, Present, and Future, and since HARLEM WEEK was in its 44th year, we acknowledged 44 inspiring women who have changed the world or are on their way to changing the world. From past singers like Ella Fitzgerald to current-day activists like Jackie Rowe-Adams to future voices like Yolanda Renee King, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s granddaughter - the 44 women selected have shattered the mold and transformed the status quo in a broad range of fields.

The second theme was OUR COMMUNITY WITHIN THE COMMUNITY: SALUTING LGBTQ.  Harlem has a long, inextricable, inspiring history with the LGBTQ community.  Its legendary establishments and artists include Clam House speakeasy, performer Ma Rainey author James Baldwin, painter Richard Bruce Nugent, philosopher Alain LeRoy Locke, poet Langston Hughes, novelist Countee Cullen and even modern celebrity Neil Patrick Harris.
