7. Louis Armstrong Birthday Celebration

Courtesy of the Louis Armstrong House Museum

Famous jazz musician and Queens resident Louis Armstrong celebrated his birthday on July 4th, and though this may not have been his actual birthday, the Louis Armstrong House Museum, housed inside his former home in Corona, carries on the tradition every year. This year the museum will be celebrating Armstrong’s 119th birthday.

The outdoor celebrations will include a live jazz concert in Armstrong’s Japanese-inspired garden at the Armstrong house and of course, free birthday cake! You can purchase tickets at the door and keep an eye on the house museum website for more details.
