Per Staten Island Peace & Unity Festival:

“The aim of the outdoor festival is to bring together people from all sectors of our city after the year-long pandemic. As summer approaches and New Yorkers begin to emerge from isolation, the festival’s organizers hope to foster an environment where peace and nonviolence are encouraged. In partnership with community leaders, the organizers and performers will encourage unity in the hopes that the borough –and the city overall –will bounce back stronger than ever.”

This is set to be an incredible event in the city, and if you want to go, you can get your tickets right here.
