CURLFEST New York

CURLFEST New York

New York City is known for being one of the most diverse cities in the country. It’s also known to be one of the greatest places to go for some fun. As such, celebrations of culture are common, and the annual CURLFEST is a favorite for many New Yorkers and tourists. CURLFEST is all about celebrating natural beauty, and was founded by a group of women of color who decided that their naturally beautiful, voluminous curls were something to celebrate, not to hide. Each year in the hot July sun, thousands of women from all over the world gather in jubilant support of African American beauty. The vibrant festival is held on Randall’s Island Park and features live music, various food trucks, braiding stations, beauty stands, artisans, and designers.
