Socrates Sculpture Park
Long Island City
Immerse yourself in one of the most vivid expressions of Mexican culture as the 7th annual Guelaguetza Festival New York City returns to Socrates Sculpture Park!
La Guelaguetza, whose name comes from the indigenous Zapotec word “to give” or “to offer,” takes place in Oaxaca City, Mexico every summer and showcases the dances, music, and traditions of Oaxaca. Each region brings to the festival and its participants something “to give” which is representative of that region, including the much-loved “Dance of the Pineapple.”
Address: 35-01 Vernon Blvd.
Long Island City, NY 11106
Founded in 1986, Socrates Sculpture Park is the only site in the New York Metropolitan area specifically dedicated to providing artists with opportunities to create and exhibit large-scale sculpture and multi-media installations in a unique outdoor environment that encourages strong interaction between artists, artworks and the public. The park’s existence is based on the belief that reclamation, revitalization and creative expression are essential to the survival, humanity and improvement of our urban environment.
