HONK NYC! Festival 2016 Comes to Brooklyn This Fall

HONK NYC!, the raucous annual international street band extravaganza, celebrates 10 glorious years in 2016 with a fresh batch of riotous rhythms and jubilant jams. More than 300 musicians from 20 ensembles will march through Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Staten Island, and Jersey City from October 11 to October 15, presenting a cavalcade of free and low-priced performances in clubs, parks, gardens, schools, museums, and other public spaces.

This year's HONK NYC! includes a day in Staten Island, with a HONK NYC! Pop-Up at the Staten Island Museum at Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden, and an evening concert at Everything Goes Café. HONK NYC! will also present its 3rd annual HONK! for More Gardens Parade on the Lower East Side, co-presented with More Gardens.

An artist-run festival, primarily underwritten via crowd-funding and small individual donations, the annual cavalcade brings a sense of anarchic, joyful, participatory celebration to audiences. HONK NYC! weaves together musicians and performers from around the globe who share a passion for playing and preserving the grassroots global tradition of street music.

HONK NYC! 2016 is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, and also in part by a DCA Premier Grant from Staten Island Arts, with public funding from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. HONK NYC's 2016 programming is presented in conjunction with the following organizations: Ariana's List, More Gardens!, Rubulad and WFMU Radio's Transpacific Sound Paradise.
