Red Hook Walks

October 14, 2017
3:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Van Brunt Street

Red Hook Walks is SBIDC’s annual Street Fair on Van Brunt Street! We close Van Brunt Street to vehicular traffic from Visitation Street to Beard Street, and program the commercial corridor with fun activities that highlight Red Hook’s eclectic nature and dynamic businesses. The purpose of the event is to increase foot traffic to local small businesses in Red Hook, as well as to create a fun, healthy and safe space for Red Hookers to play right on Van Brunt Street!

The entire neighborhood and greater New York is invited to come on by for a day full of local activations and fun! Play giant games like checkers, chess, and jenga in the middle of the street. Bounce on our inflatable haunted castle. Get creative with community art projects hosted by Red Hook Art Project (RHAP), Pioneer Works, and Kentler Art Gallery. Do a science project with HYPOTHEkids, or relax with a good book with the Uni Project’s mobile library! Get your picture taken at the Red Hook Labs photo booth. Learn to weld at a blacksmithing workshop hosted by She-Weld. Groove to live music hosted by Jalopy Theatre and School of Music and Bene’s Record Shop. And paint pumpkins with us, SBIDC!

Local businesses like Baked, Dolce Brooklyn and La Newyorkina will be selling tasty treats that you can enjoy on the street, and many of Red Hook’s famous eateries like the Good Fork and watering holes like the Brooklyn Ice House are hosting sidewalk cafes and outdoor seating right on Van Brunt! Select storefronts like Dry Dock will be offering wine and cider tastings.

SBIDC is giving away free and fabulous Red Hook Walks t-shirts printed by Fulla Shirts to anyone who takes tweets, grams, or Facebooks pictures in front of five Red Hook businesses using the hashtag #RedHookWalks.

Come for these activities and more on October 14th! See you there.
