The Fifth Annual LUNGS Harvest Arts Festival

“As I floated lonely down the street one day

Who did I see slippin’ my way?

Slum Goddess from the Lower East Side

Slum Goddess gonna make her my bride” The Fugs

The LUNGS Harvest Arts Festivals celebrate the poetry/anarchy/history and culture of the Lower East Side.

The Fifth Annual LUNGS (Loisaida United Neighborhood Gardens) Harvest Arts Festival will take place in 38 community gardens on Saturday, September 24 and Sunday, September 25, 2016.

The Festival is free and open to all. Events include music, dance, performance, films, photography, painting, sculpture, puppets, and comedy as well as environmental workshops and yoga. Each garden designs its own programing, so the festival is as interesting and eclectic as the Lower East Side.

The 2016 Harvest Arts Festival is organized by LUNGS

(Loisaida United Neighborhood Gardens), a nonprofit organization founded to promote, protect and preserve the community gardens on the Lower East Side.
