We invite you on Saturday, June 10th and Sunday, June 11th for a weekend of arts, culture, food, and fun at the second annual Central Brooklyn Arts & Culture Weekend. This block party-style event celebrates the extraordinary creativity and spirit of Brooklynites whose diverse work excites our imagination and brings us closer together as One Brooklyn. We are excited to engage our cultural institutions — such as the Brooklyn Aquarium, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Brooklyn Children’s Museum, Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Public Library, Jewish Children’s Museum, and Prospect Park Zoo — in this true community effort.

The Children’s Playground in Dr. Ronald McNair Park will be home to a near-endless lineup of interactive activities, including bouncy houses, ball pits, ice cream social, martial arts and skateboard demonstrations, a gaming truck for kids of all ages, and much, much more! Three different stages in front of our cultural institutions will showcase diverse performances of music and dance. Local vendors sited along Eastern Parkway will offer a tasty array of cuisines as well as original art and handcrafts.
