Start the day with Brunch at one of many participating restaurants or BBQ at one of the designated grilling areas in Coffey Park. For Out N’About, all-day in Red Hook businesses will offer special discounts in honor of the day on everything from farm fresh produce to a Zumba class to rainbow sharks!
We’ll have Love in the Afternoon in Coffey Park for an afternoon of activities, including workshops, face-painting, a make-over photo booth, performances and guest speakers. Our day in the park will end with a strictly symbolic group wedding ceremony.

Attendees will be invited to head back to Red Hook’s main street to Strut Yo Stuff when we’ll sip and shop at wonderful boutiques, restaurants & bars. Finally we’ll bring this festive day to a close with a Party, featuring goodies donated by Ninecakes, beer from Thomas Hooker Brewing Company, and wine from T. Edward Wine. You can take a free vogue-dance class and our members from GMAD will present a mini Ball with special guest performers and judges.
Directions to Red Hook
By Subway: The closest trains are the F or G train to Carroll Street. You can walk from there (See the above directions by foot). However, you can also grab a public bus from Brooklyn Heights or Park Slope subway stops. Bring a book, though, the buses come every 10 minutes, and that’s on a good day.
By Public Bus: From Brooklyn Heights or Downtown Brooklyn, or Park Slope: Take the B61 Bus NOTE: The B77, which may be mentioned in some guide books or online sites, used to connect Park Slope and Gowanus with Red Hook. This bus was discontinued in 2010.
By IKEA Shuttle: You can also get a free IKEA shuttle bus. The IKEA shuttles pick up and deliver people to Smith Street in Carroll Gardens , and to Fourth Avenue and Ninth Street in Park Slope , and Borough Hall in Downtown Brooklyn and Brooklyn Heights from 3p.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekends. Check the company website for frequency of the shuttles, however.
