Annual Events: Halloween Harvest Festival
Saturday, October 27, 2018
12:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m.
Presented in partnership with Konfederasyon Nasyonal Vodouyizan Ayisyen (K.N.V.A)
The final event of the 2018 season is our beloved Halloween Harvest Festival, which, this year, is inspired by Fet Gede, the Haitian Festival of the Ancestors. Vibrant cultural performance and activities will be provided by the New York chapter of Konfederasyon Nasyonal Vodouyizan Ayisyen (K.N.V.A), including a Gede song workshop, card readings, mini altars in the landscape honoring aspects of the Gede pantheon, and a procession culminating in a special dance and drum performance.
Join us also for our Socrates Halloween traditions: spooky costume- and art-making, fantastical face-painting with Agostino Arts, Urban Shaman Mama Donna’s harvest animal blessings for your pets, and of course, our annual Canine Costume Contest with fun prizes and local judges, including Château le Woof and Friends with Four Paws!
Our 2018 events are supported, in part, with public funds from the State of New York, with special thanks to Assemblywoman, Catherine Nolan.
