GALA & CONCERT
Celebrate Brooklyn! is one of New York City's longest running, free, outdoor performing arts festivals. Launched in 1979 as a catalyst for a Brooklyn performing arts scene and to bring people back into Prospect Park after years of neglect, Celebrate Brooklyn! was an early anchor in the park's revitalization and has become one of the city's foremost summer cultural attractions.
The season starts with their Opening Night Gala & Concert, a highly anticipated event that takes place in a tent at the Prospect Park Bandshell. The artist Janelle Monáe and her aesthetic was the inspiration for the invitation graphics—all of which informed the event design under the tent.
