After over a year since the pandemic, Harlem Derby returns to Harlem with it’s May 1st 2021 inaugural Music Fest hosted by Cecil Steak House/Minton’s Playhouse, with Sonya Hensley as M.C.
Rob Owens annual Harlem Derby Events seem to evolve each year (minus 2020) into a full blown Harlem happening occasion where everyone is dressed their Harlem Best!
The annual Harlem Derby Event this year kicks off with the Harlem Derby Music Festival honoring black jockeys and horsemen.
Of course all of the beautiful & handsome harlemites came out to the music fest. The ladies hats and dresses are a big deal at the annual derby events, as one pretty young lady or dashing gent can win the Best dressed Award!
The Harlem Derby Music Fest featured: Crag Harris and Tail Gate Tales, along with many others. And did I mention a mini (fashion) parade and marching band!
I on the other hand had a wonderful time, and can’t wait till next year Harlem Derby Events.
Until next year I will…..see you at the races!
