Jam On DUMBO Summer Family Music Festival (Sat Aug 10)

Saturday, August 20, 2011
From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., at Adams Street and Water Street (Under the Archway), kids’ entertainers will jam on as local vendors sell their wares in a community marketplace. The Summer Family Music Festival is sponsored by the The Dumbo Business Improvement District and The Gallery Cafe and free to attend.

Here’s the day’s line-up:

The festival will also feature a performance by P for Puppet and family yoga led by Bija Yoga.

Jam On DUMBO was founded in late 2010 by a group of local parents looking to bring more children’s music programming to the cobblestone-lined neighborhood known as DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass). After hosting a series of successful winter music concerts, Jam On DUMBO began to think bigger: Along with planning its Summer Family Music Festival, the organization has brought a weekly drop-in music classes to a local café and is planning a Music Week at P.S. 307, a local elementary school that primarily serves the Farragut public housing complex.
