The 2011 Howl! Festival in Tompkins Square Park was a grand success!

Hosting an estimated 100,000 visitors, under mostly blue skies, and featuring an incredible children's section called The Howl! Out Loud Kid's Carnival.

Over 95 artists performed over the course of the Howl! weekend. 

This year's stunning debut (with rave reviews from young and old alike) was The Hot Howl! Disco Tea Dance curated by DJ Johnny Dynell and Nathaniel Siegel. 

The Children's Carnival included story-telling and performances by Rosie's Theater Kids among many others. 

In addition, Howl! 2011 hosted perhaps the most diverse and interesting Art Around The Park we've ever had! 200 artists participated in the creation of beautiful works of art on 1100 square feet of canvas.
