Greenpointers showed up this past weekend at our inaugural Open Air Fair and we can’t thank you enough from the bottom of our soggy hearts for the support and love we felt throughout both days. Rain did not pour on our parade Saturday because despite it pouring ALL DAY our community still showed up and our amazing vendors powered through with Spring shower cheer and sun in their hearts. On Sunday over 3k visitors came to hang out under the Greenpoint sun, shopped, enjoyed food and drinks along the scenic Brooklyn waterfront with epic views of NYC.

We’re doing it again THIS WEEKEND May 27 & 28 for a Memorial Day Cook Out and Dancing!

Join us on the beautiful Greenpoint Waterfront at 2 Noble St from 11AM-6PM to eat to your hearts desire then dance it all off before shopping from some of the best of Brooklyn’s makers, artisans, and small business.

On Sunday (May 28th), we’ve teamed up with Brooklyn Swings to bring you some vintage jazz age style fun! FREE dance lessons! Come learn a Lindy Hop move and dance to live performances by Evan Hamaguchi & Friends. With roots in the Harlem Renaissance, it’s not a swing dance event with some good old fashion Soul Food so we are so excited to have Harlem Seafood Soul dishing up some southern faves like creamy shrimp and grits, friend mac & cheese, and seafood po’ boys!

It’s a long weekend and if you’re like us and staying local, you won’t want to miss our Memorial Day weekend cook out! In addition to Harlem Seafood Soul, Island Spice Grill and King Jerk are bringing Caribbean flavors to top off your staycation. Expect traditional jerk spiced chicken plus some creative takes on oxtail and beef patties from authentic Jamaican kitchens.
