The Congo Square Market takes place 4-8pm every Friday through September 3rd and features live local music & dancing, visiting with friends and vendors selling food, instruments & more. Vendor fees and fruit and vegetable stand proceeds support Southside and the Congo Square Market.

Named for the famous Congo Square in New Orleans, the market honors African-American history. In the early days of US slavery, recently enslaved African peoples and others could gather in Congo Square for music, dance, and stories. The Ithaca Congo Square Market is a project of Southside Community Center, Ithaca Youth Bureau’s, Paul Scheurs Memorial Program, and Tompkins County Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Whole Community Project.

Please spread the word even if you can’t come!
