On Saturday, September 7th (1-8pm), WEPA NYC presents “Honoring Our Ancestors”,  a free outdoor celebration that asks participants to look back to our roots and honor those who’ve gone before us.

In these days of social media, it’s easy to lose touch with who we really are and our human connection. We are descendants of people who made sacrifices so that we could live a better life. Let’s keep their memory alive and share our heritage, especially with the children.

We are honored to share this day with the House Coalition who will be hosting an appreciation picnic for those who participated at this year's Dance Parade.

At the end, we are all ONE.

In tribute to our ancestors, we are encouraging wellness of body, mind and soul. We are looking for Yoga, Tai-Chi, Meditation, Nutrition, Dance, Zhumba, Stretching, Health Drinks, etc...  Please contact us if you would like to participate.

Music by: Antonio Ocasio, Ace Housenation, Ali Coleman and Wil Milton

Drum Circle begins at sunset... bring instruments, a blanket, elders, children, anything you'd like to share and an offering for "The Tree of Life". Pets are welcomed.

We are cultural and musical preservationists. We bring people together to honor our roots and pay homage to our ancestors through music, drum and dance. ¡WEPA! provides a foundation and shrine to experience the true meaning of tradition, joy and freedom.

- Joann Jimenez and Antonio Ocasio (WEPA NYC)
