Weeksville is the epitome of Brooklyn cool. Independent, talented, brilliant and passionately focused on community. Weeksville is the prototype for all the beautiful cultural yumminess that we recognize and exalt as “Brooklyn”. Weeksville Homecoming, powered by Brooklyn Magic, is the celebration and proclamation of this.
Weeksville Homecoming is a full day of festivities that uses art, media and experience as a vehicle to teach and stimulate the consciousness of the heritage center. By maintaining attention on our rich past we will help to inspire the creation of our abundant future.
A portion of the proceeds will go to Weeksville for operations and continue our amazing (if we do say so ourselves) programming.
