The Bandshell is best known for hosting the Celebrate Brooklyn Performing Arts Festival, a series of music, dance, film, and spoken word performances held each summer from June through August, showcasing an extraordinary diversity of artists. A program of BRIC Arts|Media|Bklyn, the festival attracts nearly a quarter million concertgoers per season.
