Friday, September 7th-Sunday, September 30th: The NY Clown Theatre Festival (Parade Today)

The NY Clown Theatre Festival is New York’s preeminent annual, international Clown Theatre festival since its inception in 2006.

The Brick Theater, Inc., presenter of the first festival of Clown Theatre in New York in over 20 years in 2006, brings the festival back this fall as the 2012 New York Clown Theatre Festival, performing September 7-30 at The Brick Theater in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

The festival begins on September 7 with its traditional opening day parade from Union Square through the L line subway to Williamsburg, followed by an open-to-the-public pie fight at The Brick Theater! And it closes on September 30 with the traditional closing day Funeral, with clowns weeping and wailing in the streets of Williamsburg.
