BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn!

BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! is coming back for its 40th year!!!! This performing arts festival – an annual occurrence – is again offering locals an incredible array of music, film, dance and other cultural festivities from international artists.  Food and crafts will be on sale from local artisans too.

This year, some of the highlights include: free Prospect Park Bandshell concerts (with Aimee Mann, The Breeders, Common, Fischerspooner among others) which began at the beginner of summer on June 5 but continue through August 11 (25 of which are free with a suggested $5 donation at the gate). The others are to raise money for the future free events at the festival.

Leslie Griesbch Shultz, BRIC President explained:

 “For four decades—since the summer of 1979—the Festival has represented the best of what Brooklyn and America can be: a welcoming supercollider of ideas and cultures, informing and enriching each other. We are grateful for all the support BRIC receives to keep the festival free and accessible to all New Yorkers.”
