Community Board 11 and State Senator José M. Serrano will host the fourth annual East Harlem Arts Festival on Saturday, August 18, from noon to 5 p.m. at 106th Street from Third to Park avenues.

Free music, dance and theatrical performances will take place on the Third Avenue stage. This year's headliners include Aurora & Zon Del Barrio who will perform at 4 p.m.; The Jazz Museum in Harlem All-Star Quartet, and the Mexican music and dance troupe Semilla.

This year, local designer Nicole Romano will present a special fashion show on the Third Avenue stage. Romano's work has appeared in "Sex in the City" and a variety of fashion magazines. Celebrities, including Alicia Keys and Eva Mendes, have worn her creations.

The Puerto Rican Intercultural Drama Ensemble (PRIDE) will perform excerpts from playwright Eugene Rodriguez's "Our Times," a mix of Nuyorican poetry and salsa.
