N2N Street Festival Coming in September
The Neighborhood-to-Neighborhood (N2N) street festival is a free daylong community event State Senator Anthony Hardy Williams created in 1989 as a peaceful and enjoyable way for families and community members to connect and engage with one another. After a six-year hiatus, N2N made a triumphant return last year with a free concert from Grammy and Oscar-winning rapper, actor and activist Common.
N2N began as a community cookout before expanding over the years into a major family festival stretching five city blocks, boasting big-name performances and attracting thousands from the region. The festival brings an array of communities together to enjoy food, music, live entertainment and each other.
On September 16, 2017, we will gather together once again on Baltimore Avenue from 12 noon to 8:00 p.m.
Please join Black Women in Sport Foundation, which is partnering with me to host this street festival, and help us spread the word about this free community event as we celebrate Peace, Prince, People…. And all things Purple! Special guests include DJ Questlove, Sheila E., Morris Day & the Time, and PnB Rock! Guest hosts include Patty Jackson, TuRae, and Skeet.
Be sure to arrive early so you don’t miss your chance to see Sheila E perform at 2:00 p.m.
The N2N Festival will again also provide live music, free food, health screenings, community resource tables, giveaways, craft and food vendors, a children's zone with games and activities, a senior tent with resources, activities and prizes for seniors, and much more. Just bring a chair. Please see our event flyer or visit www.n2nfestival.com.
We look forward to you joining us at N2N 2017! If you have any questions, please contact my office at 215-492-2980.
