The {NewNew} + DanceAfrica = Good Times!

This weekend is the venerable outdoor/indoor performance/market fest at BAM known as DanceAfrica. A Memorial Day weekend tradition, DanceAfrica is packed with dance, music, art, and film events—plus the one-and-only DanceAfrica outdoor bazaar.

The Bazaar, which is a sprawling two-block music-and-food-filled outdoor affair at Lafayette Ave and Ashland Pl in Brooklyn, features over 250 vendors from around the world. Artisans, traders and even a {NewNew} Etsian or two converge on the streets surrounding BAM, transforming the neighborhood into a global marketplace offering Africa, Caribbean, and African-American food, crafts, and fashion. Rain or shine!

This year ButtaflyUnltd will be out in full force with her classic crochet hats and inspirational tees.

Check it out this Memorial Day weekend:

Sat, May 23, 12noon—10pm
Sun, May 24, 12noon—8pm
Mon, May 25, 12noon—7pm
