    BHF 2010 Dates Annouced

    Brooklyn Bodega, producers of the Annual Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival (BHF) announced the 2010 dates today – July 5th- July 10th, 2010.

    The new week long format features a showcase of independent local, national and international talent, panels, film, theater, and of course Main Day performances, and the Family Day Block Party. All events are held throughout Brooklyn from Williamsburg to DUMBO.

    Organizers are especially proud to be returning to the Brooklyn waterfront as it is being transformed into New York’s premier park space. “We have been fortunate enough to host the Festival along the beautiful Brooklyn coast line since our second year [2006]. When the word came down that our home, Empire Fulton Ferry State Park was being closed for renovation we began to work closely with Regina Meyer and the good people at The Brooklyn Bridge Development Corporation. I am excited that not only are we returning to the Tobacco Warehouse for our Main Day, July 10th but have also added Brooklyn Bridge Plaza and New Dock Street. This increased space will allow us to produce two separate stages as well as build a large marketplace for our vendors.”

    - Wes Jackson, Executive Director, Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival
