The people behind the Brooklyn Night Bazaar have announced they're heading to the Rockaways and launching a beach bazaar at Jacob Riis Park, called, wait for it... Riis Park Beach Bazaar, where they're promising free concerts, entertainment, shopping, a bunch of food vendors, and drinks, on the waterfront.
The beach bazaar will open just in time for Memorial Day weekend with all sorts of vendors including artists, breweries, and wineries, as well as free concerts on Saturday and Sunday afternoons throughout the summer. Along with the shopping and entertainment, the bazaar will feature a pretty great lineup of food options like Ample Hills Creamery, Fletcher's BBQ, and other heavy hitters.
Since it's at a freaking beach, you can expect a variety of activities like beach volleyball, ultimate frisbee, sand soccer, paddleball, and other beachy activities. They're also planning one-off events like a kite flying festival, a sand sculpting competition, wine and craft beer festivals, and even car expos.
