Harlem Healthy Soul Festival
Apollo Theater (253 W. 125th St., Manhattan)
On Saturday, June 1, the Apollo Theater is presenting a new community initiative focused on family health and wellness – Harlem Healthy Soul Festival. Harlem Healthy Soul Festival is designed to serve as a platform for Harlem families to learn about the numerous community health resources to live active and healthy lives.
This daylong, free event begins at noon and will transform 126th street behind the Apollo, into a block party filled with music, entertainment, celebrity performances, health and educational resources and family fun. Families are encouraged to participate in an array of activities such as health screenings, nutrition-focused cooking demonstrations and exercise modules.
EmblemHealth and Manhattan’s Physician Group will also provide free health screenings. Dr. Bob Lee (WBLS) will serve as the Apollo’s host for the Festival, which will include Apollo Amateur Night winners, Dance Theater of Harlem and Harlem Seeds!
This cultural celebration of healthy living will feature a Men and Women’s Health Pavilion, Kids World Pavilion, Family Health and Wellness Pavilion or Healthy “Soul” Food Pavilion. Additionally, surprise celebrity guests will conduct exclusive interviews and book signings at the Celebrity Hot Spot.
