Time: 4:00 - 5:30pm
Place: In the Park at 121st St. and Morningside Ave.

This year we've moved our event to 121st Street so it is more conveniently located for the many afterschool programs at the north end of our park.

We'll have free refreshments and music along with explanations of the holiday traditions of Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. Take part in building holiday cheer!

Help us get the word out by downloading our event flyer.

Remember Our Organization In Your Year End Giving Plans

As anyone who has been in the park recently and lived in the neighborhood for some time knows, our advocacy and mission of park revitalization has produced real results. Unlike our neighboring large parks with significant endowments and conservancies with paid staff, our entire organization is run on a shoe string budget and staffed by unpaid volunteers.

Please give generously to help support the mission of our charitable 501(c)3 organization. You may do so by clicking here to make a secure online donation or send your check to the address in my signature below. If you choose the online option it's also easy to select a recurring monthly payment.


Thank You So Much!
