BROOKLYN COMES ALIVE Announces Postponement Amid COVID-19 Outbreak and New York Mass Gathering Ban

Brooklyn Comes Alive 2020, set to take place on Saturday, March 21st, 2020 at Brooklyn's Avant Gardner, has postponed the festival until a later date in response to the growing public safety concerns in the wake of the virus pandemic.

As of yesterday, March 13th, 2020, New York State Governor, Andrew Cuomo, announced in a press conference that the state ]has banned all mass gatherings of 500 people or more.

Brooklyn Comes Alive officials have issued the following statement:

Due to the ongoing virus pandemic, Brooklyn Comes Alive has been postponed.

We have been working tirelessly to come up with a solution, as the health and safety of our attendees, the artists on the lineup, and the general public is our primary concern. Until today, we had maintained hope that we could figure out a way to make it work, but with the newly instated ban on mass gatherings in the state of New York, we are unable to move forward with the event as planned.

We know that this is upsetting and that many of you were traveling in from all over to attend. We are just as disappointed as you are, but Brooklyn Comes Alive is not going anywhere-we'll be back before you know it.

We are currently working with the artists and Avant Gardner to figure out a rescheduled date. We appreciate your patience as we navigate these unprecedented waters and will have more information for you soon.
