ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
On Saturday September 14. 2019, the Carroll Gardens Association (CGA) will be hosting the Southwest Brooklyn Fall Festival, celebrating the best of Red Hook, Carroll Gardens and the Columbia Waterfront. The Festival, which runs through the heart of the Columbia Waterfront District, is the one time of the year when Southwest Brooklyn's diverse community of local businesses, artists, service organizations, and residents come together. We pride ourselves on being 100% Brooklyn, showcasing homegrown artists and artisans, performers, and local cuisine.
Attracting more than 2,500 people from all over New York, elected officials, and almost 100 participating community-based businesses, nonprofits, and local talent, the Fall Festival highlights distinct neighborhood culture while celebrating a shared Southwest Brooklyn identity.
