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). Celebrating its sixth year in 2019, Porch Stomp teams up with Megan Downes and the City Stompers, MMNY and the North Flatbush Bid to bring you another exciting year of old-time music to ring in the holiday season.  Flatfoot Flatbush is fiscally sponsored by M&T Bank of Flatbush Avenue and Con Edison and has included past collaborations with the Brooklyn Public Library & The Jalopy Theater.
