Uptown Nights: Wepa! Movement, Culture and Music the Curtis Brothers and Circa '95 - Harlem Stage
March 23, 2019 - New York

Harlem Stage and the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI) present a two part series of music and conversation celebrating the courageous and resilient Caribbean immigrants who traveled across land and sea and arrived in El Barrio, aka Spanish Harlem, seeking a bright future. What did they bring with them? What was left behind? What was reinvented? Spoken word, hip-hop, DJ and Afro-Latin jazz will be the vehicles that transport us to sunny beaches, sofrito, five floor walk-ups and sun kissed dreams of belonging.

New Shanghai Circus - St. George Theatre
March 24, 2019 - Staten Island

Astonishing athletes defy gravity and execute breathtaking feats as they stretch the limits of human ability in this spellbinding show that draws upon 2,000 years of Chinese circus traditions. If it's humanly possible – and even if it seems as if it's not – these acrobats, jugglers and contortionists do it with spectacular flair! The Chinese acrobatic tradition dates back to 700 B.C.; that's over 2,000 years of tumbling, balancing and juggling. Ancient stone carvings, earthen pottery and early written work trace the ancestry of today's spectacular acts. Relics tell the tales of famous acrobats like Confucius' father, who is believed to have lifted a pair of 1,000-pound city gates to let an army storm through.

Celebrate Party Showcase - Mitzvah Market
Through March 31, 2019 - New York

Each of the annual Celebrate! Party Showcases attract hundreds of families who are all looking to meet Bar Bat Mitzvah vendors. All showcases are held from 12 noon – 4:00pm. These showcases are especially effective for exhibitors who have something special and different to present to families who are looking for the newest, hottest and greatest for their child's celebration. These Bar Bat Mitzvah families get to spend an afternoon meeting face-to-face with Bar Bat Mitzvah experts who can make their child's celebration different from the rest. Some vendors sign business right at the event. It's fun to sample the food, try out the newest entertainment and learn what's unique in Bar Bat Mitzvah planning. ** We distribute our annual Mitzvah Market Magazine at these events. Editions are also distributed throughout New York City, Northern/Central New Jersey and Westchester/Rockland/Fairfield. Interested in a showcase booth?
