NYC's First-Ever Flatfooting Festival Comes To Your Door this December!

FLATFOOT FLATBUSH is Brooklyn's first-ever flatfooting parade, celebrated as part of Make Music New York's Winter Solstice Celebration. 

On December 21st, 2020, Porch Stomp celebrates the Winter Solstice with some light and music on the darkest day of an extremely dark year. Flatfoot Flatbush, Porch Stomp’s annual winter event, will take place both in person and virtually on 12/21 from 3-9pm. 

Now in its 7th year, Flatfoot Flatbush is hosted by Porch Stomp, in partnership with the North Flatbush Avenue Business Improvement District, City Stompers, and Make Music New York, with support from M&T Bank and ConEdison. This year, in response to the COVID pandemic, Flatfoot Flatbush offers an extensive online program in addition to live programming on Flatbush Avenue, including the first ever WINTERFEST featuring lessons, performances, jams and more!. There are several ways to take part in Flatfoot Flatbush 2020, both in real life and online. Scroll over to read all about it!
