This spring and summer the ever popular Williamsburg weekend events Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Flea will be held at East River State Park on the southeast corner (near North 7th and Kent). From the parks department:
“We are thrilled to welcome the Flea to East River State Park. Already fast becoming a centerpiece of the community, this addition will draw even more people and add to what we fully expect will be a spring and summer full of exciting, community-oriented events and programs at this park,” said State Parks Commissioner Rose Harvey.
“Moving the Flea and Smorgasburg to East River State Park feels like a perfect fit,” said Jonathan Butler, co-founder of the markets with Eric Demby. “Staying on the Williamsburg waterfront in this vibrant community is a big priority for us, and we love that the markets will now support one of New York’s truly great parks. And who can argue with that view!”
Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Flea open the weekend of April 6th.
