Celebrate Brooklyn is one of New York City’s longest-running outdoor festivals. It was started in 1979 as a way to bring people back into Prospect Park after years of neglect. The festival was an anchor in the park’s revitalization, and it remains one of the city’s biggest summer attractions. Notable artists at the festival over the years include Norah Jones, Bob Dylan, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, and Blue Man Group.
