Join Experience Harlem This Juneteenth Weekend for Its Signature Shop & Sip Events

Looking for a way to celebrate the anniversary of our Independence Day and the fall of the last-standing Confederate State?  Harlem has the biggest Juneteenth weekend celebration planned in New York State.

The three-day party includes music, food, shopping at an explosive Experience Harlem special summer Juneteenth edition of Shop & Sip Harlem. Guests “shop” at at a participating Black-owned businesses in Harlem, then receive a ticket to “sip” a complimentary Maker’s Mark cocktail to celebrate. 

“Harlem has long been recognized as the Black capital of the world. There’s no better way to celebrate Juneteenth weekend, kick off summer and the reopening of New York than to discover Harlem’s scores of Black entrepreneurs, small businesses, artists and artisans,” says Angie Hancock, founder of Experience Harlem.

The Juneteenth weekend officially kicked-off on Friday, June 18 with cocktails and conversations at Ristorante Settepani to discuss the work of the Harlem Commonwealth Council, an enterprise which has provided economic and entrepreneurial services to to upper Manhatan and the Bronx for the past 55 years.
