MR./MISS HARLEM SHAKE



ABOUT MR./MISS HARLEM SHAKE

Every year, Harlem Shake allows our customers to decide who will be the new face of Harlem Shake through a yearly competition. In 2016 we started including men as well as women. Customers vote in-store to decide their favorite.

The winner receives FAME: their face on our Wall of Fame, Representing us in the African American Day Float, FORTUNE: a generous cash prize to both the winner and their favorite Harlem charity, and FEAST: a year of FREE burgers!

The requirements are simple: Be a Harlem resident. Be between 18 and 98. And be yourself!

In 2017, Florence Edwards was awarded a one-time honorary title, that of Harlem Classic, named after our best selling burger. At 97, Florence Edwards was Harlem Shake’s most senior contestant ever. Her lifetime of community contribution has led Harlem Shake to bestow this title. See her in the African American Day parade in September!
