Come join King Manor for our fourth annual Traditions Festival! It’s a weekend full of food, music, art, and crafts in Jamaica, Queens from the 18th century to modern times, bringing the past and present together for a celebration of traditions all over the world! Fun for families and people of all ages with hands-on activities, demonstrations, and tastings!
Activities will include early American costumed interpreters, with broom-making, blacksmithing, spinning and carding, loom weaving, and down hearth cooking. Also featured will be an array of arts and crafts from across the globe including Filipino calligraphy, Mexican dressmaking, Korean cooking, and more! Visitors will have the opportunity to meet artisans, ask questions and try their hands at crafts from a wide range of cultures, or from a different time.
Traditions Festival is free to the public and will take place rain or shine.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council through the Cultural Immigrant Initiative.
