We are very excited to announce that the Brooklyn Night Bazaar will open at it’s new location in Greenpoint, beginning Friday, November 1st at 6PM. Admission is free!
Inspired by the night markets across Asia, Brooklyn Night Bazaar is back and now it has a permanent home! The Brooklyn Night Bazaar will bring together more than 100 of New York City’s most creative independent vendors, musicians, chefs, artists, breweries and wineries. The combined night market, art fair, food festival and music venue will take place every Friday and Saturday night starting November 1st. The Night Bazaar will be held at 165 Banker Street, between Norman and Meserole Avenues at a 24,000 sf warehouse with large-scale light installations and an A/V performance venue designed by Nuit Blanche New York (NBNY).
This year, a host of media, music blogs and record labels will take the reigns of music curation, including Gothamist, BuzzFeed, BUST Magazine, Paste Magazine, (Le) Poisson Rouge, Panache Booking, Scenic NYC, Impose, MyFreeConcerts.Com, The Deli, T-Presents, Insound, Kanine Records, FatCat Records, Bunce, Bad Blood Records and Songza. Some of this year’s featured music acts include: Spank Rock, Bear Hands, Kitty Pryde, Frankie Rose, Slow Knights (feat Del Marquis of SCISSOR SISTERS), Small Black, Psychic TV, and more to be announced shortly.
The Bazaar will feature multiple activity spaces, including a 9 hole mini golf courseand table tennis room. PUMA flew in Brazilian graffiti artist SILKS to canvass the table tennis space in a former enormous walk in freezer.
For the 3rd year in a row, the Bazaar will again be open and free to the public.
Taste Williamsburg Greenpoint is coming up on September 9, 2012 from 1pm-5pm at CitiStorage. Erin took some drool-worthy photos from last year’s event to get your taste buds going. I got an email from the owner of Teddy’s Bar & Grill this morning which explained that aside from being the biggest and best North Brooklyn foodie mecca, the funds raised from this event go toward converting “the legendary, shuttered, ‘people’s firehouse,'” into a community and cultural center in Williamsburg called the Northside Town Hall Community and Cultural Center. They have raised “$1.1M in government funds,” but additionally must raise the rest of the funds for this project to demonstrate wide support for the Town Hall and “trigger the funds.” Of course, Greenpoint-based Kickstarter is hosting an online fundraiser where they aim to raise $10,000! And you can buy tickets to the event to support this cause as well!
