"Culture | Celebrate Brooklyn!
June - August
Founded in 1979, Celebrate Brooklyn! is one of New York City’s longest-running, free outdoor festivals and in its 35-year history the event has hosted performances – ranging from music and dance to theatre and spoken word – by over 2,000 artists reflective of Brooklyn’s cultural diversity. Celebrate Brooklyn! was launched with the dual purpose of establishing a performing arts scene in Brooklyn while helping to regenerate the neglected Prospect Park, where much of the festival takes place, and has become one of the city’s most popular cultural attractions drawing in around 250,000 visitors each year. Music performances this year come from R&B sensation Janelle Monae and recently reformed bluegrass band Nickel Creek, while the festival’s dance parties, held at the Brooklyn Bridge Park, will include sets from Israeli electronic outfit Balkan Beat Box and DJ JD Samson.
