The Harlem holiday lights festival offers an unforgettable experience for people of all ages. Every November, a wide variety of community groups and merchants will host in-store activities and promotions, as well as outdoor activities, to celebrate Harlem culture and the start of the holiday season. The event takes place along 125th Street, and it stretches from Fifth Avenue to Marginal Street on the East River. From karaoke and trivia to the Parade of Lights and an ugly sweater contest, this event offers something for everybody. The celebration also includes a children’s village, so the little ones can enjoy Harlem Holiday Lights, too. Your kids can participate in games, face painting, and much more.
Harlem truly has a unique, arts-focused culture, and it’s filled with indescribable energy when it’s lit up. We’re thrilled to share the excitement with you.
