It may have been raining outside the Northeast YMCA, but inside Bronx Borough President Vanesa Gibson was introducing Bronx Week 2022, and the three honorees for the Bronx Week/ Walk of Fame 2022, and  Bronx Week Parade across Mosholu Parkway on Sunday May 15th. Bronx Borough President Gibson was joined by Deputy Bronx Borough President Janet Peguero, and Bronx Tourism Executive Director Olga Luz Tirado. Tirado introduced the Borough President who went through some of the events planned for Bronx Week with multiple events happening on one day. 

BP Gibson said that others have seven days in a week, but here in the Bronx we have ten days for Bronx Week. The events begin on May 5th with a Senior Day buffet style luncheon. This event is by invitation only. Each day afterward there are one, two or even three events going on ending Bronx Week on Sunday May 15th with a Bronx Week Parade across Mosholu Parkway, Bronx Week Street Festival, and Bronx Week Grand Finale Concert. You can visit and go to the right of the page between the Bronx Week 2022 banners and click on View All Events to see each day’s events, and how to participate.

Three honorees will be inducted into the Bronx Walk of Fame Class of 2022. Since 1997, the Bronx Walk of Fame has served as the premier honor that can be bestowed upon any Bronx native, with past luminaries including Prince Royce, Chazz Palmintieri, Fat Joe, Swizz Beats and several others. This year, our honorees are Actor Luis Ramos, Director, Editor and Cinematographer Eif Rivera and Rapper Remy Ma.
