The Fair is a wild new take on the traditional County Fair, a day-long celebration of art and food grown in Brooklyn!

Festivities engage all the senses: hear live music performed by local Bang on a Can marching band Asphalt Orchestra; taste delicacies prepared by local chefs inspired by ingredients from Brooklyn farms; view specially commissioned work exploring the culture of agriculture by local artists; get a feel for materials needed to produce your own food in workshops by Brooklyn Food Coalition; participate in a Blue Ribbon Competition hosted by GreenThumb; and browse a marketplace with some of Brooklyn's small-batch artisanal food purveyors curated by Greenpoint Food Market. Cap it off with The Food Experiments' live cooking competition -- Brooklyn Roots -- featuring savory samples and refreshing drinks from Brooklyn Brewery, Six Points Brewery, Red Hook Wines, Brooklyn Oenology, Kings County Distillery, and others.

Participants include:

Asphalt Orchestra, Brooklyn-based 12-piece next-generation avant-garde marching band, will open the event in Bergen Street, and the neighborhood between 11am and noon.

Andrew Casner, compost painter, demonstrates his acclaimed, agrarian work-the community process of developing a viable compost with an acid-etched canvas underneath created as a natural by-product.

Mathilde Roussel-Giraudy, a Brooklyn-based artist, presents Ca pousse ! (It's growing!), human form sculptures made from material such as wheatgrass that change as they grow.

Miwa Koizumi, Brooklyn-based ice cream maker of "NY Flavors," will create a geographically inspired new ice cream flavor based on Bergen Street and the festival.

Tattfoo Tan, the vibrant urban farming visionary artist, launches his new bike-based S.O.S mobile Classroom, as the next installment in his two-year long public art project entitled S.O.S Sustainable Organic Stewardship.

Wylie Dufresne, renowned chef of wd-50, creates a new downloadable recipe based on re-imagining local ingredients, to be sampled at the Fair.

Christina Kelly, Brooklyn-based artist meditates on loss and possibility growing blue corn in monumental street planters in a public art project called, Maize Field, located where Lenape Indians planted in the 1600s.
