Presented in collaboration with Downtown Brooklyn Partnership

Families are invited to a festive day of outdoor and indoor performances, interactive activities, and showcases of local talent! BAMkids SpringFest celebrates the spirit of the season and themes related to environmental advocacy and care. Highlights include a program of springtime ragas from Indian classical musicians that melodically evoke joy and renewal; a kick-off concert from Grammy-nominated children’s musician Uncle Jumbo; mural-making with visual artist Ebony Bolt; and a closing concert where Flaco Navaja serves up old school South Bronx salsa. Stay all day or just drop by—there’s no wrong way to celebrate!

Co-curated with the BAMkids Parent Advisory Circle
This group of amazing BIPOC Brooklyn-based or raised parents/guardians have made a year-long commitment to regularly meet with BAMkids staff to reflect, dream, and advance the future identity of BAMkids by co-curating new experiences and programs.
