The Kingston Avenue Festival, a summer staple event, packs the street with crafts booths,  visual arts, games, workshops, t-shirt give aways, face painting, free food, and additional youth programming along Kingston Avenue in Crown Heights. Performers showcase their skills on stage and DJ’s keep the energy up with music and emceeing throughout the day.

Additionally, community agencies partner with the Mediation Center to host resource booths to share helpful information and assist neighbors with a variety of services. Previous partner agencies have included Fresh Air Fund; Community Links; FOKUS; City Year; Project Reach Youth; Arts for Progress; Friends of Brower Park; Crown Heights Assembly; Wellcare; and Visiting Nurses Service of New York and many more.
