There's always something new at Manhattan's oldest house

Morris-Jumel Mansion's
Culture and Arts Festival
250 Edition

On October 31st, Halloween day, Morris-Jumel Mansion will host the fourth-annual Culture and Arts Festival. One of New York City's most beloved community events, the Festival (called CAFé for short) gathers uptown Manhattan's finest artists, musicians, artisans and restaurateurs or an afternoon of performance, craft and tastings. This year, CAFé coincides with Morris-Jumel's 250th Anniversary. To mark the occasion, Morris-Jumel is dedicating the event to the neighborhood of Washington Heights—Morris-Jumel's friend and steward for 250 years.

Among the uptown musicians performing at the fourth-annual CAFé are Underworld Productions Opera, jazz flutist KAT Modiano, the Harlem Swing Dance Society, Brit-pop savant Bill Popp, and storyteller Bobby Gonzalez. Among the art works and crafts on display and for sale will be watercolors by Reset Realty, oil paintings and ceramics by Anna Efanova, bespoke hats and headdresses by Dora Mara, and children's clothing by Rosi Rouge. Food vendors will include Sonora, Bice Ristorante and the New Leaf Restaurant and Bar.

CAFé, which runs from 11 am to 6 pm, is free to attend, and no registration is required. Simply swing by, and sample the best that the uptown culture has to offer.
