Special Events on Labor Day Weekend in the Bronx NYC
Sunday, September 3, 2023 on Labor Day Weekend, from 1 to 5 pm, the last Bronx Sunday concert series will be held at Coop City in Section 5 in the Einstein Loop. This year  the Sunday Salsa Concert series went on hiatus due to renovations at the Orchard Beach Park facility. The concert is casual and FREE.
One of the biggest event over the Labor Day Weekend in the Bronx last year  was that the Yankees hosted the Twins. This year they will be playing against the Astros in Houston. So, you're not likely to see a full parking lot at Yankee Stadium at River Avenue and 161st Street.
Next weekend, September 9th & 10th, 2023 from from 11 am to 7 pm, is the City Island Art Fair. It's held along Main Street, with the epic center at Hawkins Park and there will be some 60 plus artisans, craftspeople and food vendors there.
