Soul Summit…

The Soul Summit Music Festival is a weekly Sunday event that takes place in Fort Greene Park in Brooklyn on Sunday afternoons, 3 p.m. – 8 p.m. The Festival is always free and open to the public. The Festival showcases artist of various artistic backgrounds.

Over the past TEN years, the Festival has become an institution developing a loyal following of music fans that bring the hills of Fort Greene Park alive with families, food, dancing and community love. The festival provides the backdrop for access to music, networking opportunities and other outdoor activities. Over the years, Soul Summit Music festival has become one of the most anticipated outdoor events in New York City. The festival has successfully created a hub of activity in the immediate community and beyond with weekly visitors from all over the tri-state area and internationally.

 

This weekend they had an outdoor dance party at Ft. Greene Park in Brooklyn, NY. This event has been going on for over 10 years at the Ft. Greene Park, but over the last couple of years they have run into major opposition from the “new folks to the area”. Mind you this is event has been here for 10 years without incident. If they have there way Soul Summit will be no more.

Soul Summit draws people from all walks of life. The young and the old. Straight, gay and everything in between.

For those of you who would like to check it out, come on down to either Ft. Greene Park or out to Coney Island and get your dance on.
