If your clients want something out-of-the-way and out-of-the-ordinary during their New York trip, suggest they visit Brooklyn. The DUMBO Arts Festival returns this year to showcase local, national and international artwork in the ever-hip and happening Brooklyn neighborhood. (For the record, DUMBO stands for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. We don't make these acronyms up, honestly.) The multidisciplinary Festival will include visual and performance art, open studios, music and literature, family programming and more. The Festival runs from September 23-25.
The Festival, currently in its 15th year, will present artwork in DUMBO studios, galleries, storefronts, performances venues, parks and even on the East River. Visitors can meet and interact with artists working in their studios or making murals on the streets, participate in literary events and listen to music of many different genres. The Festival will feature free programming for children of all ages.
