Note to Soiree Attendees:
Thank you for your patience as we monitored the weather over the past several days. While our rain dance did not work its magic as best as we hoped, the forecast predicts a chance of light rain and inclement weather.
Given this forecast, we are moving ahead with Prospect Park Soiree. In the event of rain, please bring umbrellas, rain gear, towels and an adventurous spirit! Tents, canopies and other structures are not permitted for safety reasons. We have been fortunate enough to have good weather in past years, even when the forecast has stated otherwise, and look forward to a beautiful evening in Brooklyn's Backyard!
Please visit our info page for more information!
Attend the most celebrated party of the year! We provide the entertainment and breathtaking setting, while you gather with thousands of friends—new and old—to enjoy an evening under the stars in Prospect Park.
Wear your most festive attire, prepare a delicious feast, bring your favorite bottle of wine, and dine and dance under the stars in one of Prospect Park’s most scenic locations. Show off your creativity with a show-stopping topper—a fabulous hat or headpiece of your choosing—as well as table décor that celebrates the beautiful surroundings, and raise your glass in a toast to Brooklyn's Backyard.
We are excited to introduce this year's entertainment! Inspired by the Big Band Era of Jazz, Dandy Wellington and his Band have taken the sounds of the 1930’s and 40’s and created a world of well-dressed music. Post-dinner, enjoy a DJ dance party with DJ Cosmo Baker, who has played alongside artists as diverse as Drake, Jay-Z, Frank Ocean, The Roots, Erykah Badu, Pitbull, Trey Songz, N*E*R*D and Moby.
Proceeds benefit Prospect Park Alliance, the non-profit organization that sustains, restores and advances Prospect Park for the benefit of the diverse communities that call Brooklyn home.
