Fourth Annual Bed-Stuy Street Festival Celebrates Tompkins Avenue Business
BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — Part of Tompkins Avenue will turn into an active pedestrian plaza on Saturday, as Bed-Stuy residents celebrate the diverse businesses on the commercial corridor for the fourth straight year.
The Tompkins Avenue Merchants Assocation, or TAMA, joins with Bridge Street Development Corporation annually to throw the TAMA Summerfest, which features music, food, art, games and more, between Hancock Street and Putnam Avenue on Tompkins.
There will also be children's book readings, fashion shows and prizes, Bridge Street said.
On Saturday, IAMPOPULA returns, alongside indie rock band the Sunday Belts.
The final day of TAMA Summerfest takes place on Saturday, Aug. 3, from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.
