The final event of our 2019 season is inspired by the Haitian Festival of the Ancestors, as we welcome Konfederasyon Nasyonal Vodouyizan Ayisyen (K.N.V.A.) and Imamou back to Socrates for Halloween Harvest: Fèt Gede!
Vibrant cultural activities include a Gede song workshop, card readings, and a procession culminating in a powerful dance and drum performance conceived and directed by Alexandra Jean-Joseph, with choreography by Mikerline Pierre and music by Menesky “Sky” Magloire.
It also wouldn’t be Halloween at Socrates without these much-loved traditions: costume-making, Agostino Arts face-painting, Urban Shaman Mama Donna’s Pet Memorial Altar and Blessing of the Animals, and our hilarious, adorable, always creative Doggie Costume Contest with local judges Château Le Woof and Friends with Four Paws!
