Starting today, Friday, Sept 24, the Dumbo Arts Festival begins its annual three day celebration of music, art, dance, and media (in Dumbo Brooklyn, of course). The neighborhood-wide event is the largest festival of the year for Dumbo where artists use every area of Dumbo as a canvas to display their artwork. This is the 14th year of the festival.
According to the event organizers, the neighborhood will be open to visitors from around NYC and the world to showcase over 500 artists, 100+ artists’ studios, 50+ galleries and stages, and 100+ programming partners. There are too many to list here, but please see dumboartsfestival.com for the listings and information about the event.
As in past years, the best way to experience the Dumbo Arts Festival is walking around the neighborhood and explore the streets, lobbies, storefronts, galleries, the river front, and participate in the interactive art exhibits. Newly added this year are kid-specific events and activities for families. For more info on the family events, go to dumboartsfestival.com/family and mommypoppins.com.
