Bushwick street art group Bushwick Collective are holding their eighth annual Block Party on Saturday, June 1 from 10 AM-6 PM at the intersection of Troutman St and Saint Nicholas Ave. The free event includes hand-selected local food trucks, a merchant market of vendors selling original art, prints, jewelry, clothing and more, face and body painting, meet and greets with "old school graffiti legends," live-painting from over 40 street and graffiti artists, and, of course, live music. Rick Ross headlines the 2019 edition of the block party, and there will also be sets from Statik Selektah & Friends, DJ Evil Dee, and "many many more surprise performances."

You can also purchase VIP access to the Block Party, which includes:

(1) 2019 Limited Edition Bushwick Collective T-Shirt (designed by Patch Whiskey)
Private Restroom(s) - No Lines
Unlimited Beer and Cider

Happening at the same time on June 1, as Bushwick Daily reports, is the Bushwick Art Crawl, "a free art festival in the public space in Bushwick, on Wyckoff Ave, and surrounding art studios, galleries, pop ups centered around the Jefferson L stop.":

We invite the community to IMMERSE into celebrating art with the many artists studios, local music talent, performance art, live art, body painting, installations, a creative experience that sparks new bonds and reshapes the neighborhood!
