The free event is taking place in Romford on Saturday
Thank YOUth will include a large 15 diameter inflatable dome as well as live music and dance.
It will feature performances from local young artists and DJs such as singer Madi Mai and dance crew Lit Youth.
There will also be the opportunity for those who attend to ‘vlog’ about their experiences coming out of lockdown as well as the chance to add artwork to a memory wall display.
The event is taking place in Market Place, Romford, from 11am to 4pm on Sunday, 5 September.
Youth Unity, who are organising the event on behalf of the Council, are a community group that specialise in engaging with young people through a variety of socially responsible campaigns including knife crime and drug awareness education.
Havering Council staff will be distributing test kits from The Liberty Vaccine Centre nearby and will be on hand to answer any questions about vaccinations or testing.
The leader of Havering Council, Cllr Damian White, said: “We want to thank all our young residents for the role they have played during the pandemic and ‘Thank YOUth’ is a positive way to show our appreciation.
“We recognise the significant sacrifices our younger residents have made throughout the pandemic, with school lessons interrupted, social interactions limited and a reduction in sport and physical activity.
“‘Thank YOUth’ is an opportunity to pay tribute to the sacrifices they have made and the challenges they have encountered over the past 18 months.
“I’m looking forward to joining the celebrations on Sunday and personally thanking all those young people in attendance on behalf of our borough.”
