We’ve been telling you about Illuminate Stapleton for quite a while now, and as September comes to a close, you can practically see the lights. The Illuminate Stapleton neighborhood festival is a collaboration between The Historic Tappen Park partnership, The Projectivity Movement, and NYC Small Business Services.

Illuminate Stapleton will be a neighborhood wide festival highlighting the artists, art spaces, and other local businesses in and around Tappen Park, in Stapleton.  Visitors to the park will be able to view large scale video projections, experience different light based art installations in the park, listen to live music from local bands and community performers, and get an overall sense of what Stapleton has to offer.

Staten Island Arts will also be hosting an artist market where visitors can purchase all different types of handmade arts and crafts from local artists.  The park will host other community vendors and food trucks for visitors.  In the surrounding neighborhood of Tappen Park, visitors can take a 3 minute stroll to any of the 7 venues that are hosting different art themed events during the weekend.  Details about each event can be found online and in the Illuminate Stapleton event program.

On Friday, October 9th at 8pm, there will be an opening reception at Tappen Park. This ceremony will feature live music, art, video projections, food, and of course light installations. Then on the following two days, October 10-11th from 5-11pm,  7 different Stapleton locations (Hub 17, Vida, Stapleton Library, 50/50 Skatepark, Edgewater Hall, Overspray, SI Makerspace) will be hosting Illuminate Stapleton themed art events.
