Badass Brooklyn Fall Festival in Gowanus

On Sunday, September 14 from 11 AM to  5 PM  (rain or shine), The Badass Fall Festival will be rolled out on President Street between Third Avenue and Nevins Street in Brooklyn.

This big street festival -- with activities, vendors, music, and more -- is both a local Brooklyn community event and part of a growing rescue mission. All proceeds go to support the work of Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue as the organization continues to grow its foster and volunteer community in order to save more death row dogs.

Some highlights of the festival:
  • Shopping with local food and craft vendors for every taste, budget and category, including home goods, dog clothing and accessories, coffee, winterwear (yes, it's coming), and delicious street food to eat while you shop. Kick out your Christmas shopping early without going near a box store. 
  • Activities for adults, kids and dogs, including Mr. Bones and Co. and their famous pitbull kissing booth; an agility course offered by Gowanus-based Doggie Academy; and more soon to be confirmed. 
  • Badass Raffle, with raffle prizes that include donations from Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club, Twig Terrariums, CMJ Music Marathon, Maker Faire NY, Ample HIlls Creamery, Evermore Pet Food and more TBA. 
  • Badass Pet Tricks, modeled after Letterman's "Stupid Pet Tricks", a light-hearted contest with celebrity MC/judge TBA. 
  • After-party at Canal Bar, at 270 3rd Avenue in Gowanus, with beer tickets available by advance sale or day-of.
Stay tuned for late-breaking additions as they are added.
