StoryHarvest 2014 with Alex Torres & His Latin Orchestra and Nation Beat plus food, art, fun and more!

The fourth annual StoryHarvest Festival community celebration, featuring free food, music, art activities and more, takes place from 3:30 PM until sunset on Saturday, September 27, 2014 at Freedom Square in North Troy (101st Street where 5th and 6th Avenues meet).  The all-ages event takes place rain or shine; the inclement weather location is The Sanctuary for Independent Media (3361 6th Avenue, North Troy).

Alex Torres & His Latin Orchestra take the stage at 3:30 PM, performing their amazing original blend of Afro-Caribbean rhythms including salsa, merengue, cha-cha, bomba, plena and Latin jazz.

At 5 PM, the band Nation Beat brings on their 21st century mash-up of the thunderous grooves of northeastern Brazil fused with the strolling swagger of New Orleans funk.

It's going to be a party! 

Just as farmers reap the harvest, providing sustenance for all, it’s time to celebrate all our harvests--the results of seeds sown through art, education, agriculture, tolerance, and everything we do to build strong, healthy communities.

Bring your own lawn blankets and chairs, plus food if you want to share in our community potluck;

Co-sponsored by Friends of Freedom Square, Troy Bike Rescue, Chefs' Consortium, Capital Region Pride Center, and more!
