2018 BRIC Celebrate! Brooklyn Festival Line Up Announced

May 02, 2018

Summer is on the horizon, and in Prospect Park, the season means the return of the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival. In 2018, the festival celebrates its 40th season with 31 performances, running from June 5–August 11. The programming, reflective of Brooklyn’s eclecticism and diversity, will feature a wide array of free, world-class performances at the beautiful Prospect Park Bandshell. The BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented by BRIC in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance, is New York’s longest-running, free outdoor performing arts festival, and takes place each summer at the Prospect Park Bandshell. 

Sue Donoghue, President of Prospect Park Alliance, said, “We are delighted to host the 40th season of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival at the Prospect Park Bandshell. Over the past four decades, this festival has brought a wide range of free music and family programming to Prospect Park, to the delight of the many diverse communities we serve. Congratulations to our partners at BRIC for this tremendous success.” 

Tickets are still available for many of this season’s benefit shows, and the majority of the festival's performances are free to the public. For more information, check out our BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! page, and for the full line-up, scroll down!
