Celebrate Brooklyn’s agricultural past with a day of food, games and education at the Wyckoff House Museum later this month.
The 17th century farmhouse is hosting their annual Breukelen Country Fair on Saturday, September 22. Events during the day include a local pop-up farmer’s market, planting activities, face painting and more. Get to the museum in East Flatbush by 1:30 p.m. for a puppet show by the City Parks Foundation’s Puppetmobile.
You’ll also be able to try your hand at cider making, ride a pony, tour the historic farmhouse and learn more about honey bees, wampum making and plants. It will also be the last weekend to check out “Nou La – We Reach!,” a contemporary art installation done in collaboration with the Brooklyn Arts Council.
The fair runs from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m on Saturday, September 22 at the Wyckoff House Museum at 5816 Clarendon Road. Admission is free but some activities and food require paid tickets. For the exact timing of the activities please check out the schedule here.
