SATURDAY, JANUARY 21st

It’s time for FLATFOOT FLATBUSH!!!

Join the Porch Stomp, the North Flatbush BID, and the City Stompers for Flatfoot Flatbush, Brooklyn’s first-ever flatfooting parade, celebrated as part of Make Music New York’s Winter Solstice Celebration each year on December 21st.


During Flatfoot Flatbush, dancers, fiddlers and pickers parade down Flatbush Avenue playing old-time tunes while flatfooting, a form of percussive dancing from Appalachia. The afternoon begins at 1pm at 333 Lounge (333 Flatbush Avenue) with a free flatfooting workshop hosted by Megan Downes and The City Stompers, where participants will learn the fundamental steps of this rhythmic dance form and have a chance to practice with the Flatfoot Flatbush Band. Immediately following (from 3-5pm), the flatfooting parade will traverse Flatbush Avenue, stopping along the way at local businesses to sing and dance in exchange for goodies. The fun continues back at 333 Lounge at 5pm at the Flatfoot Flatbush afterparty/ NFBID merchant holiday party, featuring music and dance sets by the Flatfoot Flatbush Band.
