Last Minute Weekend Suggestions: Brooklyn Heights and Nearby

On Saturday, September 26, there will be an Americana/Roots/Alt Country call-it-what-you-like (I like it) music festival in Brooklyn Bridge Park. It will happen from 2:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Granite Terrace on the landward side of Pier 3 (not to be confused with the Granite Prospect on Pier 1) and admission is free. There will be six groups performing, including the M Shanghai String Band (photo). It’s free and there are more details here. Also on Saturday, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., on Pier 1’s Harbor View Lawn there will be an Autumn Moon Festival, “the 2nd largest holiday celebrated throughout Asia.” It’s free, and there’s more information here. Saturday is also International Coastal Cleanup Day, and if you want to help clean up the Park’s shoreline (wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty) please RSVP here (directions included).

You may take a free guided Brooklyn Bridge Park tour by going to the Pier 1 entrance near the foot of Old Fulton Street at 11:00 a.m. Sunday. Looking ahead to September 30, there is the next Wednesday Night Tour, which begins at 6:30 p.m. at the entrance to Pier 1 near the foot of Old Fulton Street. The subject of this week’s tour will be “Fall Birds of Brooklyn Bridge Park.” It will be led by birder and naturalist Heather Wolf. Tickets are $10, or $5 for Conservancy members. There’s more information and buy tickets here.

At Bargemusic tomorrow (Friday, September 25) evening at 8:00 Inbal Segev will present the first of two concerts in the course of which she will play the six solo cello suites by Bach. On Saturday evening at 8:00 pianist Jeewon Park will play works by Beethoven and Schubert. On Sunday afternoon at 4:00 the Cassatt Quartet will perform works by Clara Schumann, Mendelssohn, and Schumann. Saturday afternoon at 4:00 there will be a free, family oriented “Music in Motion” concert, co-sponsored by the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy. Doors open at 3:45; first come, first seated.
