Brooklyn! Fall! Brews! Bounty! Yes, its that time of year again. The Yard is once again hosting a day of farm fresh food, live music, local vendors, delicious brews and other triumphs of sustainable urban living. Join us! Last year, over 1,000 people flocked to the banks of the Gowanus Canal. This year, with pony-rides, arts n crafts, pumpkin carving, pie bake-offs, urban chickens, raffle prizes, composting, transportation alternatives, voter education, and tons of surprises... it will be a day to remember. Best of all, proceeds from the Gowanus Harvest Festival will be donated to Just Food.

About the cast and crew:
Over the past two summers, The Yard has grown to become a favorite local destination, hosting events such as Kaiju Big Battle, Sunday Best series, AudraRox, Rooftop Films, and more.
Resting on the banks of the Gowanus Canal, The Yard still harbors signs of its seedy past and commercial landscape, but also boasts a grove of trees and boating docks. A beautiful independent venue where industrial meets bucolic. Managed with love by MeanRed Productions. www.theyard.ws
From dim sum restaurants in Chinatown to industrial lofts in Clinton Hill, no place is safe from the tireless grip of MeanRed parties. The Yard is part of an ongoing MeanRed curatorial series to highlight the importance of DIY entertainment and alternative venues. www.meanredproductions.com
