Barefoot Ball is back—but please, no need to actually shake off your shoes. It’s the party of the summer: get ready to dance on the Bryant Park Lawn under city skies to the beats of legendary DJ Grandmaster Flash, with an opening set by Hannah Bronfman. (Yes, seriously.) Tap into a beer and wine open bar, sip lively probiotic drinks from KeVita and ionized water from Essentia, enjoy curated activities, and nosh on yummy bites from neighborhood favorites while the sun sets over Manhattan and you and your crew party into the night. 

On Wednesday, July 26th, Bryant Park is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its restoration with this second annual Barefoot Ball, a gala for a good cause: proceeds from Barefoot Ball go toward supporting the park’s over 1,000 annual free activities and programs. Last year’s ball was a huge success, so this year’s event is expanding for an even bigger open-air dance party. You’re welcome.

All tickets to Barefoot Ball include access to the beer and wine open bar. General admission ticket holders can purchase food from NYC’s top vendors like Burger & Lobster, Takumi Taco, Taiyaki NYC, and Alidoro. VIP tickets include a dedicated beer and wine open bar, a sangria bar by Ortzi, a Barefoot Ball gift bag, tickets redeemable for food, and more. A very limited number of bungalows are also available for purchase, which include VIP event admission for eight, a private bungalow with table service, food tickets, gift bag for eight, and more.

Don’t miss this summer’s Barefoot Ball, because come on city people, this lawn was made for dancing—all night long. Grab your tickets today!
