Dear Friends!

We are so grateful for your past support of HONK NYC, which brings the tradition of global street band music and spectacle to audiences everywhere — in parks, at clubs, in schools, and especially out in the streets.

We are asking for your support once again as we get ready for our 11th annual festival, which takes place October 10 – 15

HONK NYC continues to grow each year. Our 2017 festival caps off an amazing summer, during which we continued our partnership with Make Music NY, developed and ran a week-long kids camp at Staten Island Children’s Museum, and presented at NYC DOT’s Summer Streets. Next weekend we’re making our third HONK installation at the World Maker Faire, teaching instrument and costume building and creating spontaneous processionals and parades throughout the day.
For the past four years, we’ve run an annual Kickstarter campaign to help financially support HONK NYC. This year, we’re doing something a little different.
Support from YOU, our community, is what enables us to bring this joyous, ambitious festival to life year after year!

We’re offering you two ways to support HONK NYC in 2017!

You can make a direct, tax-deductible donation to HONK NYC in support of this year's festival! Donations are processed by our fiscal sponsor, Bindlestiff Family Variety Arts.
