We are thrilled to be a founding member of BKBlockParty.Live, a digital block party to support small businesses in Brooklyn that have been impacted by COVID-19.

Stay home. Shop small. Support Brooklyn. 

On Saturday, May 23rd from 10am until 2pm, Brooklyn is getting its first digital block party that will put live-streamed content from local Brooklyn shops together in one place on BKBlockParty.Live. Just like a leisurely stroll down your favorite street, this one-day, live shopping event will draw Brooklyn residents to a single destination where they can drop in, say hello, and support the small businesses that make the borough so special. 

WHO: We’re partnering with your favorite local shops, restaurants, independent designers, artists and local organizations.

WHAT: BKBlockParty.Live takes the block party off the streets and onto your screen allowing consumers to drop into live video streams of their favorite Brooklyn establishments all on one site.  

WHEN: Saturday, May 23rd (Memorial Day Weekend)

WHERE: BkBlockPartyLive.com

WHY: Because non-essential businesses on our favorite Brooklyn blocks are suffering. It’s time to come together to shop around and support the neighborhood establishments that need it most. 

 

From iconic Brooklyn distilleries to vintage boutiques and wellness centers, there’s something for everyone. Stop by on Saturday starting at 10am to learn how to make the perfect brunch punch, shop unique fashion finds, get a crash course on ice cream and wine pairings, or just enjoy a ceremonial sound bath if you need a breather. For a list of vendor activations, just stop by the block.

You don’t live in Brooklyn, you say?? Good news! With a digital event you can support the business owners that make Brooklyn so special from anywhere. Place an order by phone, online, or just Zoom-in to show you care.
