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.
Last Chance! Purchase tables or tickets by June 1 to be entered into a raffle for a hat-making workshop for two at East Village Hats. Taking place Sunday, June 17 from 2-5 pm, no skills are necessary for this fun class, which will have you and a friend creating fascinators (just like the royal wedding) using your choice of a wonderful array of trimmings. Drinks will be served and you will come away with a completed fascinator just in time for the Soiree!
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.
