Get ready for the Smith Street Fun Fair, one of the neighborhood's favorite events. Mark your calendar and be there....
THE LITTLE STREET THAT COULD - DOES IT AGAIN!!
Smith Street Funday Sunday
June 26,2011 from Noon to 6PM
Not a tube sock, not a sheet, no massage chairs! There is something special about Smith Street’s Annual Festival. It is not just coordinated -- it is “curated”. We start with a street full of special shops with an eclectic variety of things you will want to wear, consume, eat, or otherwise enjoy --
and to that we add our BOCOCA neighborhood art and craft talent, community activism, interests and collections; plus the independent designers, the joie de vivre, and only the finest region wide assortment of vendors of merchandise you will really want to bring home.
We are eight blocks long -- deliberately not the longest or the biggest because we aim to bring you Brooklyn’s most exotically perfect bazaar!! Our businesses also aim to bring you fun – by sponsoring great local music and entertainment at four locations along the way..
Not to be missed is - Stinky Brooklyn”s fourth annual “Cheese Eating Contest” which will take place at 2:30 PM on the stage in front of their sister store Smith & Vine Wine Shop, between Sackett and DeGraw. That same stage will hold “StinkFest”, a day long schedule of entertainment with something for everyone -- all ages and tastes.
The BOCOCA Arts Festival will bring an array of local talent to Ceol Pub between Warren & Baltic Streets, Angry Wades will provide their exquisite choices of local music groups at the corner of Butler Street, and of course there will be salsa dancing to live bands in the street in front of Tony’s Hardware and Cibao Restaurant between Wyckoff & Warren Streets.
