Programs:

Each year the Festival gathers people from all over the region to hear headline concerts free on the New Haven Green.   Headline performers are chosen to reflect the great variety of cultures and individuals in our region.  In 2010 headline performances included the Blind Boys of Alabama (an African-American a capella singing group founded in 1939, winners of multiple Grammy awards); La Excelencia (a 12-piece salsa orchestra from New York City, which The New York Times described as "the real deal")' and Dan Zanes & Friends, a rock-influenced, family-oriented performing group (described by Chris Arnott of the New Haven Advocate as "an examplar of art that doesn't box itself in.")
