  • The Great Lawn (Central Park) Great Lawn Oval New York, NY, 10024 United States (map)

Join us in celebrating La Diada in New York on Sunday September 9!

 

LA DIADA 2018

10am - 12pm Human Towers workshop

12pm - 2pm Picnic in the park

 

We will start the day at 10am with a brief workshop on human towers, a Catalan tradition called castells which is amongst the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO and consists in building the structure of a tower with people. The course will be given by trained professionals and is open to adults and kids as we will create a safe environment for everyone to participate.

See the video below for more information.

After raising our human towers, around noon we invite you to bring everything you need for a picnic in the park.  We will provide water and other drinks. 

Both events are free.

We are gathering on the west side of The Great Lawn in Central Park, right behind the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The closest access on the west side are either 86th or 81st Streets. On the east, 84th and 79th Streets.

We are looking forward to seeing you all!
