Open City Night feat. Brooklyn Swing Ensemble

July 24, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

What matters to our community right now? Are we engaged in decision making processes the impact us? Are our needs and hopes being met? Do we know our neighbors? What does it mean to participate in civic life?

Open City nights in Congress Square Park are opportunities for neighbors to gather to ask questions and share information about issues important to our shared community life. Co-presented with local organizations, you can expect these evenings to be artful, participatory, informative and compelling.

All invited, all welcome.


Open City feat. Brooklyn Swing Ensemble

What better way to meet your neighbors then through dance? Join Brooklyn Swing Ensemble for a few hours of social dance. Swing, jazz, folk, klezmer – they’ll bring a mix!

BSE started out playing for a swing dance in Philadelphia and has evolved into a dance band for many genres. They are well known in the Northeast for their unique blend of Fiddle tunes, Klezmer music and Swing/blues – playing for contra dances and other events throughout the region. With fiddle and clarinet as the lead instruments, they are sure to get you out of your seats!


Open City is a series hosted in Congress Square Park every Wednesday at 6:8pm from June through August. We’ll explore topics related to community life presented in artful ways that spark dialogue.
