On September 23, 2017, Turn Park Art Space, located in the heart of West Stockbridge will be transformed into an Indonesian archipelago highlighting its six main islands - Java, Sumatra, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, Bali and Papua. Upon arrival, travelers will be handed a “Passport” with six empty circles.

There will be food, dance, music, arts and crafts as well as young Indonesian artists.

This year’s theme, “Temple of the Gods,”, will give visitors the opportunity to learn more about Indonesia’s diverse beliefs and traditions that have been in existence  for hundreds of years. At the end of their visit, those who successfully collect six stamps will be  awarded a special Indonesian country fair patch. It is an Indonesian adventure in the heart of the Berkshires!

Since the 19th century, country fairs have provided local people an opportunity to come together and enjoy the finest in entertainment, hand-made crafts, delicious food and to share information.

Indonesian Street Festival 2017

  • 5 East 68th Street New York, NY, 10065 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

For centuries the Indonesian archipelago, a majestic chain of lush green islands and vast canvas of paradise has captivated countless seamen in their voyage for the new world, exotic spices, mythical creatures, and triumph. As nutmegs, cloves and cubeb pepper astronomically priced for its believed medicines and magic potions, successive waves of European drawn to this part of the world sought to dominate the spice trade. 

As we celebrate our Independence Day, come and join us for the 3rd Annual Indonesian Street Festival (ISF) 2017 in Manhattan, experience the sights, sounds and smells of the largest archipelago on earth. The ISF 2017 will have more performances, more food, more Indonesian cultures, more laughs, more tastes, and definitely more fun than ever. "The Spice Islands" will be this year theme, in conjunction with 350 Years of Breda Treaty between England and Netherland that concluded "The Publication of the Peace between England and the United Netherland". Through this, the Dutch ceded control over New Amsterdam (New York) to England for a tiny island of Run (now part of Banda Archipelago in Indonesia) which is rich in Nutmegs, a spice which one wieghed in gold.

Eat, play and love in this festival as our food vendors will bring authentic Indonesian cuisines from across the archipelago, various workshops and entertainment as well as door prizes all afternoon for everyone enjoyment.

Indonesian Consulate in New York and ISF 2017 Committee invite you to participate in this year’s celebration of the 72nd Indonesia's Independence Day. The ISF 2017 will be held on East 68th Street, New York, NY 10065 (between Madison and Fifth Avenue)
