The Staten Island Peace & Unity Festival is a concert series sponsored by community organizers The Waterteam, Uncle Chase Entertainment, Wakeem Entertainment, and 3J’s Creation Entertainment.

WHERE: South Meadow at Snug Harbor | Campus map: snug-harbor.org/visit/directions
ADMISSION: Saturday $75 | Sunday $85
The aim of the outdoor festival is to bring together people from all sectors of our city after the year-long pandemic. As summer approaches and New Yorkers begin to emerge from isolation, the festival’s organizers hope to foster an environment where peace and nonviolence are encouraged. In partnership with community leaders, the organizers and performers will encourage unity in the hopes that the borough –and the city overall –will bounce back stronger than ever. The two-day concert series features Saturday performances by Ashanti, Ja Rule, Method Man, Redman, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, Cappadonna, DJ Funkflex from Hot 97. Sunday’s performance by Lil Durka, NYY B DJ Self from 105.1 and more.
