WHEDco 25th Anniversary Summer Celebration Series!

Bronx Summer Fest 2016

Join Us for “Weekend Walks” in June

We’re taking over the streets! Come join the fun at WHEDco’s two upcoming outdoor street events on Friday, June 2nd and Friday, June 23rd.

As part of our celebration of 25 years of building a greater Bronx, we will shut down the streets for a full day of family-friendly fun! It’s an opportunity to reflect on our many accomplishments, while connecting with our clients, community residents, and partners.

Part of the NYC Department of Transportation Weekend Walks Program, Bronx Music @ Melrose and Bronx Summer Fest offer an exciting opportunity to connect community members to local community, nonprofit, cultural and economic resources. Past events have attracted hundreds of attendees from the local community and beyond.

Day-of festivities include an all-day DJ, health screenings, live performances, face painting, food and refreshments, raffle prizes, arts and crafts, and much more!

The event dates are:

Bronx Music @ Melrose, Friday, June 2nd from 2-6pm (E 161st St, between Melrose & Elton Aves.)

Bronx Summer Fest at Southern Blvd, Friday, June 23rd from 2-6pm (Louis Niné Blvd, between Southern Blvd. and Jennings St.)
