Important Updates: 2020 BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival
June 9, 2020 @ 5:00PM — August 21, 2020 @ 5:00PM Eastern Time (US & Canada)
For 41 years, we've been gathering at the Prospect Park Bandshell to sing along, dance, and revel in show-stopping performances by artists from around the world and around the block. Each year 200,000 people come together to be part of the gorgeous and unique community of our BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, but sadly this year, we will not be reunited at the Bandshell. If you have already purchased your membership, your passes will automatically be honored for the 2021 season. Should you have any questions, or to request a refund, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For 41 years, we've been gathering at the Prospect Park Bandshell to sing along, dance, and revel in show-stopping performances by artists from around the world and around the block. Each year 200,000 people come together to be part of the gorgeous and unique community of our BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, but sadly this year, we will not be reunited at the Bandshell. This is heartbreaking news for us to deliver to our staff, loyal audiences, members, community of volunteers, funders, small business partners, sponsors, and artists that grace our stage. The impact to our institution is significant as the Festival is our annual marquee event, employer of hundreds of people, a leader in the music and cultural landscape, and a beacon of Brooklyn's creative future.
We have been working hard to imagine what a remote Festival could look like instead, and we are committed to bringing performances to your home. In the coming weeks, we’ll announce our full plans.
Below is information about your membership. In the meantime, stay connected with us, enjoy our BRICxHome programming, and learn how you can help see BRIC and our Festival through this unprecedented challenge.
So what does this mean for members? If you have already purchased passes for th 2020 BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, we are offering 3 options to you, our biggest fans:
- Your membership will automatically roll over to be used for the Festival’s 2021 season. We know our Friends do their best to come back year after year. Allowing BRIC to keep your membership donation at this time will give us the financial stability we need to come back bigger and better next summer, and will save you some time next year!
