Uptown Record Fair at Recirculation 2024

Event time is displayed in your time zone.
Recirculation (Word Up): 876 Riverside Dr. & 160th St.

Join the first-ever Uptown Record Fair which will feature specialty sale items from the Recirculation archives, plus record vendors, vinyl DJs, and more. 

Fans of Recirculation already know that when the project first opened, it was stocked to the rafters with not only the thousands of books collected by our late friend and volunteer Tom Burgess–but also by his records. His collection was so vast that even after distributing large donations to music non-profits, per Tom’s wishes, we still had enough left over to maintain a whole music section in the store. Along the way, volunteers have set aside scores of specialty items, which will make up the core of the Recirculation booth at the Uptown Record Fair.

But it won’t just be us! We will have several other vendors join us, setting up tables to offer goods across the musical spectrum–jazz, rock, hip-hop, blues, experimental, you name it.

Providing the soundtrack to the day will be vinyl-centric DJs from uptown and beyond, including a special set culled from Tom Burgess’ collection. More details to come!

Entry is free, though a $5-10 suggested donation is encouraged.
