Saturday June 25th – Plaza Summer Launch Party!

Saturday, June 25th
12 PM – 8PM
78th Street Plaza

We’re excited to bring you a day of Jackson Heights fun on June 25th, starting around midday and going through until 8PM. We have partnered with the Queens Museum to bring these events to the 78th Street Plaza, as part of a Plaza Stroll Day.

 

There will be various community groups explaining what they are doing, how they can help you, and how you can get involved if you wish.

There will be several food trucks, offering some local exciting dishes.

There will be music! Starting at 5 we will have two bands playing. First up is Kominas, a Pakistani-American punk bank, followed by Jackson Height’s own Sonic Power Pops!

…and more activities that we’ll confirm closer to the date.

Rain date: Sunday, May 29th
12 p.m. – 4 p.m.
78th Street Plaza

Organized by Hibridos Collective, The People’s Tent of Tomorrow is a pop-up tent paying tribute to the New York State Pavilion. We invite locals and passersby to share their ideas for the future of this historic landmark as part of the New York State Pavilion Ideas Competition.

By entering the People’s Tent of Tomorrow, participants will learn about the significance of the Pavilion through educational and historical materials. Last month, Queens Library at Flushing hosted the People’s Tent of Tomorrow where over 400 people learned and reimagined the New York State Pavilion.

This month, join Hibridos Collective and our guest art educators Deborah Wasserman and Leontine Greenberg to draw, sketch, doodle, or design your visions for the Pavilion and submit your ideas on-site.
