Each year the DUMBO Arts Festival seeks to highlight Brooklyn’s commitment to and presence in the arts community by presenting the best in local, national, and international art amid the breathtaking backdrop of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan skyline.
The DUMBO Arts Festival attracts 200,000 visitors over 3 days with the participation of over 500 artists from a variety of disciplines, 100 studios, 50 galleries and stages and 100 programming partners. This year, the Festival will take place on Friday, September 23rd, Saturday, September 24th and Sunday, September 25th. The official Festival hours are Friday 6pm to 9pm, Saturday 12pm to 8pm, Sunday 12pm to 6pm and 6pm to midnight all three nights for all outdoor projections.
Art revelers can enjoy: visiting artists in their studios or making murals on the street; musicians, dancers, poets, performance and circus artists throughout the neighborhood, on street corners, sidewalk stages and in the park; communing with instrument makers in workshops; hearing from tech gurus about the latest advances; and joining walking tours to hear city historians share little-known stories of the neighborhood.
Please join us at the festival that brings DUMBO’s creativity to the world and the world's creativity to DUMBO every Fall.
The Dumbo Arts Festival is produced by Dalzell Productions and Two Trees Management.
