All ages
FREE

Prospect Park hosts a fantastic lineup of performances, dance and steel pan workshops, and art-making at Brooklyn FAM’s second annual, family-friendly flagship event.

The Concert Grove Pavilion and surrounding lawns feature Afro-modern MATHETA Dance, South African trumpeter Lesedi Ntsane’s jazz trio, Chinese Theatre Works’s hand puppet theater, and Tropical Fête’s Caribbean steel pan music.

Throughout the festival, families can play Chinese hacky sack, jump rope with new friends at the gaming table, and participate in the Chair Project, led by Brooklyn-based artist Annie Del Hierro, who invites you to magazine collage on upcycled wooden benches and chairs about the question “What does FAMily mean to you, to us?” The finished pieces will be installed at local businesses and gathering places as cool functional seating to spark new conversations about connection and community.

Note: Free tickets are available beginning Monday, September 19.
