East Harlem's Annual Three Kings Day Celebration Is Going Virtual Again

El Museo del Barrio's Three Kings Day celebration, the annual festival that brings giant puppets, live camels, music and dancing to the streets of East Harlem, is going virtual again due to the pandemic.

The free online festivities will be streaming on Thursday, January 6 via the museum's YouTube channel.

The virtual party kicks off at 11am with an event for schools and families. Hosted by Victor Cruz and his animated character Tita, it features a presentation by Teatro SEA, plus musical performances by Tito Matos y La Máquina Insular.


The evening portion starts at 6pm and features honorary kings; performances by Kinto Zonó, an ensemble group known for its traditional Puerto Rican sounds; and Legacy Women and Alma Moyo playing Afro Boricua Bomba and Afro Dominican Palos.
