Sun, tunes and food: The 2016 Riis Park Beach Bazaar is back!

The city's hottest beach party is back! Check out the lineup for the 2016 Riis Park Beach Bazaar

Get ready to Get Summered: Your beach party this year is getting the Brokelyn treatment. Via Riis Park Beach Bazaar.

We’ve been gleefully beating the drums of the coming summer for weeks already but this is one of the announcements we’re most excited for: The Riis Beach Bazaar is coming returning this year! The inaugural Bazaar (an offshoot of the Brooklyn Night Bazaar) last summer brought music, great food, vendors and a chill party vibe to an underused stretch of beach and making Jacob Riis Park in Queens rival any beach town in California. Now it’s back for 2016 with a new the lineup of music, parties, volleyball tournaments and events — and us! Brokelyn and our colleagues at QNS.com are presenting some of the Get Summered dance parties throughout the season, so you’ll catch us down there on a handful of weekends (and a lot of other weekends too honestly, becuase the beach is best — there’s even campfires this year!). See the full lineup below:

Screen Shot 2016-04-28 at 1.10.19 PMCatch the Get Summered parties presented by Brokelyn and QNS on: June 4, and 5, July 23 and 24 and Aug 20 and 21. Stay tuned for more juicy details on just the kind of sweaty summery fun we’ll be bringing to the beach with us as we #getsummered.
