Festival Description

Enjoy unusual rhythms, mouth watering Balkan refreshments, and fine folk arts vendors. Enter a community where young and old, corporate and artsy, professional and enthusiast, hipster and folk dancer come together through a shared love of music. Join a circle and dance hand in hand with the friends you came with, and the friends you haven’t met yet. Find a world in NYC you didn’t know existed by taking the R train to Prospect Ave., or letting the valet park your car in the on site lot, and transport yourself to an exhilarating event. It’s a once in a lifetime experience that happens every year. The Zlatne Uste Golden Festival has been New York’s biggest Balkan music event and showcase in Brooklyn for since 1985. Events take place at Grand Prospect Hall, a spectacularly restored historic landmark in Park Slope. All music is live.
