Queens Green Day Festival

Saturday, June 8, 2019 - 12:00pm to 4:00pm
Event Info

Debuted in 2018, Socrates’ Queens Green Day invites the community to learn and play at the Park while digging in to their relationship with Mother Earth.

Get back to your roots with activities and demos from Healthy Living partners Hellgate Farm, The Connected Chef, Queens Action Council (QuAC), Big Reuse, and Smiling Hogshead Ranch. Move, dance, and explore the weedy borderlands of Socrates with the Environmental Performance Agency (EPA), and encounter a series of site-specific activations that “walk between the worlds” and illuminate our connection to nature with performance artists: Chris Carlone, Stacy Lynn Smith, Hector Canonge, Mare Hieronimus, and Marina Zelenovic.

On stage, 2019 Socrates Annual artist Tecumseh Ceaser of the Matinecock clan, First Nation of Queens and Long Island, joins his father Chief Reggie Ceaser to share their culture, and Africa Forestdance brings us the music of Africa now, at once ancient and ultra-modern, to move our souls and our feet.
