The Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy (BBPC) and Brooklyn Bridge Park (BBP) are kicking off summer with an exciting array of free events, offering to visitors unique cultural, educational and recreational activities, as well as expanded opportunities to volunteer and support the world-class waterfront park.

The summer season officially kicked off earlier this month with Celebrate Brooklyn! Bridge Dance Parties, presented in partnership with BRIC. Long-time audience favorite Syfy Movies With A View, along with the Books Beneath the Bridge reading series, Metropolitan Opera, Jazzmobile with special guest Arturo O’Farrill, the World Science Festival, Photoville and DUMBO Arts Festival will all return to the park this summer.

Along with returning favorites, Brooklyn Bridge Park will host more free events that will engage visitors across a wide spectrum of interests. Expanded arts programming will include Shakespeare at Sunset performances by Brooklyn-based Renegade Performance Group and Theater 20/20, a new exhibition of Vietnamese artist Danh Vo presented by the Public Art Fund, a visit from the Barolosolo Cirkus Company, a new outdoor screening and festival with BAMcinemaFest and John Street Pasture, a temporary living earthwork that celebrates green space, agriculture, and the transitional nature of urban land in the John Street section of the park, which is currently under construction.
