Harlem Meer Performance Festival: Clean Money Music

The Harlem Meer Performance Festival is back for its 29th year!

Come enjoy this week’s performance by Clean Money Music, a diverse group of hip-hop artists, dancers, and entertainers who return hip-hop music to its original roots, with social commentary, lifestyle, culture, and fun at its core. They have been featured on The Ellen Show, Nick Cannon's "Wild ‘n Out," Growing Up Hip Hop New York, BET, LA Weekly, The Source Magazine, and many others.

A community fixture since the opening of the Charles A. Dana Discovery Center in 1993, the Harlem Meer Performance Festival is a free annual event that brings the best local talent to Central Park.
