Southside Connex is an annual two-day community street festival in Los Sures (Southside of Williamsburg) co-produced by El Puente Green Light District and Southside Merchants with support from the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce. In conjunction with NYC Department of Transportation’s Weekend Walks program, on September 13th and 20th, 1-6PM Havemeyer Street between Grand Street and South 4th Street will be closed to vehicle traffic and filled with cultural activities, health and wellness workshops, environmental justice information & resources, and El Puente’s annual ¡WEPA! Festival for Southside Performing Arts on September 20th.
Last year, during its inaugural year, Southside Connex attracted over 1,500 community members, artists, tourists, merchants and young people and is remembered as an event that celebrates the Latino culture of the neighborhood and offers local residents the chance to meet and interact with each other in the streets of Los Sures.
