Louis Armstrong Birthday Celebration
Satchmo liked to observe his birthday on Independence Day. So the Louis Armstrong House Museum is continuing the tradition. Bring the entire family for a day of fun-filled activities!

12 noon–4:00 pm
Take an intimate guided tour of Louis Armstrong’s historic home, and experience the offstage life of the great jazz legend. Tours hourly.

12 noon–12:45 pm
Children’s author Muriel Weinstein gives a scat lesson and reading of her new book, "When Louis Armstrong Taught Me Scat." After the reading, enjoy birthday cake in the museum’s Japanese-style garden! Please call 718-478-8274 to reserve a space for your family.

1:00–2:30 pm
Red Hook Ramblers. Celebrate America and Jazz in Louis Armstrong’s beautiful garden. The Red Hook Ramblers are dedicated to the preservation of America’s rich early music, from ragtime to blues to jazz. This energetic band returns to the Museum for another round
of hot jazz—Chicago and New Orleans-style!

3:30–4:15 pm
Join assistant director Deslyn Dyer for a gallery talk of the museum’s current exhibit, A Little Story of My Own: Louis Armstrong’s Collages. The exhibit offers the public a rare opportunity to view handmade collages created by the “Father of Jazz.” Because of the fragility of this artwork, the exhibit will remain on view only through July 12.
