Halloween Harvest Festival


  • Socrates Sculpture Park Socrates Sculpture Park 32-01 Vernon Blvd, Astoria, New York 11106 (map)

The Socrates season always goes out with a BANG with our Halloween Harvest Festival! This year’s theme is Día de los Muertos/Day of the Dead with vibrant performance and music presented by Ballet Folklorico Mexicano de Nueva York (BFMNY), which has been sharing Mexican heritage and culture with the NYC community for more than 30 years. Join us for spooky costume- and art-making with Socrates artists, fantastical face-painting with Agostino Arts, and add your mementos and relics to ancestral altars set up throughout the landscape. Urban Shaman Mama Donna will be offering harvest animal blessings for your pets, and if your pooch is in costume you can participate in a Socrates tradition – our annual Canine Costume Contest with fun prizes and local judges, including Château le Woof - Pet Market & Café! Todos están bienvenidos a participar en este festival inspirado por el Dia de los Muertos, una celebración Mexicana que honora los muertos.
