Bring the kids and get into the Out of Doors spirit during our annual day dedicated to dancing, singing, and fun around the fountain.


11:00 am Brown Rice Family 

A fresh world roots band jamming towards global solidarity, Brown Rice Family provides the masses with distinctively organic global music, which encompasses reggae, hip-hop, dancehall, Afrobeat, jazz stylings, rock, Brazilian, Latin, and funk. Always growing, the band now comprises eight members hailing from all over the world—Japan, Jamaica, Haiti, Nigeria, South Africa, and the USA. Their diverse backgrounds set the stage for a unique coexistence, musical creativity, and, of course, dancing!


Move the Crowd: A Day of Hip-Hop and Culture

11:00 am  2:15 pm Live graffiti by Lola Lovenotes

12:00 pm Najee Omar

1:00 pm VIBEZ by SOLE Defined

Brooklyn-based poet and educator Najee Omar opens this exuberant afternoon of hip-hop and culture with a powerful spoken-word performance. Then, transforming their bodies into drums, the high-energy dancers from SOLE Defined add a jolt of electricity to the traditional Broadway musical format. Combining tap, step, and other forms of percussive dance with acting, singing, and multimedia projections, they invite audiences into a their wholly original form of free-flowing storytelling.


Working to uplift marginalized communities, New York City–based muralist and visual artist Lola Lovenotes, an alias formed at a young age through her submergence in Bronx graffiti culture, brings her street-art skills to Hearst Plaza with live art creation throughout this fun-filled afternoon.
