Hook Arts Media is thrilled to announce that Red Hook Fest will return with music and dance live from Red Hook in 2021.

For more than 25 years, this annual Brooklyn festival featured a 2+ day summer celebration. Friday night would kick off a weekend of fun with a dance party, performances by local artists, and DJ-curated tunes. The festival would continue into Saturday on the scenic Red Hook waterfront with a free concert and soaring dance performances. Hook Arts Media proudly partners with local nonprofits around Red Hook in addition to other NYC community organizations and agencies to provide free resources and family-friendly activities. Parents can enjoy the festival while kids can enjoy scavenger hunts, kayaking on the harbor, art classes, and face painting. The summer festival would come to a close with a headliner performance as the sun sets on one of Brooklyn’s most scenic neighborhoods.

Due to ongoing COVID-19 recommended safety protocols, all festival attendees are asked to practice social distancing and wear masks at all times while attending a Red Hook Fest event.
