In addition to showcasing local design talent, the event serves as a fundraiser for the Brooklyn Heights Association. Founded in 1910, the group has a long history of neighborhood advocacy, from helping to create the Brooklyn Heights Historic District in 1965 to their current work on the BQE repair.

The event opens to the public today, Friday, September 27 and operates through Sunday, November 3. Hours are from from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday and until 8 p.m. on Thursdays. General admission is $40 and $20 for students. BHA member tickets are $35. Tickets are available at the door and online.
