About ¡CALABAZAFEST!

¡CALABAZAFEST!, Bushwick’s fun and FREE cross-cultural community celebration of the season, rescheduled due to Hurricane Sandy, returns to Maria Hernandez Park on Sunday, November 4, from 1:00pm to 5:00pm. Now in its third year, the mini-festival continues to grow and delight.

¡CALABAZAFEST! is a colorful mash-up of Day of the Dead, Halloween, and Harvest Fair traditions, with an eco-friendly message. Activities will include pumpkin crafts, “sugar skull” mask making, a costume contest (4:00pm), and cooking demonstrations using seasonal ingredients. All vegetable waste will be composted and used to enrich the soil at Bushwick Campus Farm.

Fantastic live musical performances include Mariachi Flor de Toloache, Sabor and The Afro-Latineers, and Mariachi Tapatio de Alvaro Paulino!

¡CALABAZAFEST! 2012 is being presented by EcoStation:NY’s Bushwick Farmers’ Market, with community partners Arts in Bushwick, Make the Road NY, El Puente, and Bushwick Green Team. This community event is being made possible by a grant from Citizens Committee for New York City.

at Bushwick Campus a very exciting event indeed! See the photo album on Facebook.
