WHOA. Year 5 was incredible! It was our first year taking over two venues with the best of Brooklyn talent, and we couldn’t have had a better time. We are beyond thankful to our vendors, partners and the awesome Brooklyn community that came out to support local businesses and have fun with us! We have a long list of thank you’s, but first, check out some snapshots from the event!
