Sunday, June 18
On Sunday, you might want to peruse the stands at the Renegade Craft Fair for a unique and extra-special Father’s Day present–the curated marketplace of indie vendors and artisans is back at the Brooklyn Expo Center on both days this weekend from 11am-6pm and is free to attend. Or you can take the dad in your life to the National Sawdust Table Music Brunch, featuring live performances by a baroque ensemble, if he’s into that kind of thing. Your $45 ticket includes live music, a delicious meal prepared by James Beard award-winning chef Patrick Connolly, and a cocktail, and the event runs from noon to 2pm. Looking for a meal with a bit less structure? The Egg Rolls, Egg Creams, and Empanadas Festival taking place on Eldridge Street from noon to 4pm is exactly what it sounds like, and celebrates the diversity of the Lower East Side/Chinatown. It’s free to attend and will include delicious food, art workshops, music and dance.
