The Bronx Hip Hop Block Party is an annual hip hop festival that started May 2011 to pay homage to the birthplace of hip hop.
This family friendly event is filled with interactive activities aimed to inspire creativity in the youth culture through the power of music. This event is set to bring the community together and honor the birth place of Hip-Hop through the means of Art, Dance, Rap, DJ Mixing and Fashion. There will be educational forums, mentoring and motivational speakers as well.
To kick off the 2014 festival, DJ Envy of The Breakfast Club and LA Sunshine of the Treacherous 3 will host a celebrity basketball game which will feature celebrities from the music and television industry as well as our Bronx Borough President, Ruben Diaz Jr. At “Stage A” which is located outdoors there will be live performances and interviews from Hip Hop and R&B’s brightest stars.
