For more than a century, the East Village has been home to poets, jazz musicians, vaudeville and Yiddish theater, artists represented by blue chip galleries and those painting in the subways, rock stars, and performance artists. Building on this tradition and inspired by long time East Village resident Allen Ginsberg's epic poem, the HOWL! Festival was founded in 2003. The mission of HOWL! Festival is to honor, develop, create and produce. With an estimated 100,000 visitors last year, the many performances celebrate local cultural icons and lionize, preserve, and advance the art, history, culture, and counterculture unique to the East Village and Lower East Side.
The HOWL! Festival lasts from September 10 to September 12. Sunday's events include a performance by the Lower East Side Boys' Choir, yoga lessons, a circus performance, and more!
