A Third Avenue festival intended to break the February blues with a celebration of arts and culture alongside our favorite local business had been scheduled to take place this past Saturday. But the arrival of the nor’easter that buried our neighbors in Long Island and Connecticut in over a foot of snow, even the Embrace Winter Festival had to call a snow day – the event will now be held this coming Saturday, February 16.
Running from noon to 5pm between 69th Street and 75th Street, the Embrace Winter Festival will have music, dance, art, crafts, and more both inside and outside the commercial district’s businesses. Pick up a passport and get it stamped at participating businesses and activities – pick up a prize at The Salty Dog if you fill up your passport. Details on all of the festival’s activities are below.
The Embrace Winter Festival is organized by the Bay Ridge Arts and Cultural Alliance (BRACA) and the Merchants of Third Avenue. A donation of $5 is suggested to help raise funds for BRACA.
