For more than 92 years, since it was first founded, the Schomburg Center has been passionate about representing Caribbean communities and people across the African Diaspora. That’s why we are thrilled to present our third annual First Fridays: “Carnival” Edition! «Celebrating 70 years of Caribbean Culture and History with West Indian American Day Carnival Association (WIADCA).» Back by popular demand, one of our most popular First Fridays events returns with steel pan drummers, stilt walkers, mass camp, and sponsored tables. Come ready to proudly rep your countries with paraphernalia and flags!

First Fridays guests are invited to check out our wonderful pop-up display, “Caribean History,” featuring items from the Schomburg Center collections, sign up for a Schomburg Society membership, and visit the Schomburg Shop—while networking and dancing the night away! Our host for the night will be Dhalimu from Dhali's Closet, who along with our deejays, DJ Slyk and DJ JP, and live performers will there to bring down the house in celebrationof Carnival!
