About Go Green! Brooklyn
Go Green! Brooklyn began as Go! Green! Greenpoint, the first Earth Day Festival to take place in North Brooklyn. Since then, this event has become an annual staple of community life. Each year, Go Green! Brooklyn grew in participating organizations and businesses, and attendance. Our event includes education with schools, community groups, and companies displaying research, science and art projects that enhance our appreciation and understanding of our environment. Go Green offers Greencycle Swap to recycle and reuse clothing, shoes, books, toys and more. The event hosts a green school contest, wellness with yoga, zumba and other classes, vendors with enviro-friendly merchandise, and live music and dance performances.

About Town Square
About Town Square
TOWN SQUARE is a community-based 501(c)(3) organization in Greenpoint and Williamsburg, Brooklyn, two neighborhoods experiencing dynamic changes. Founded in 2005, our mission is to build a vibrant community and enrich the quality of our lives through activities that inspire creativity and imagination, teach respect and cooperation, and celebrate the joy around us.
We’re responsible for many family events and programs in Greenpoint and Williamsburg including our popular McGolrick Egg Hunt, SummerStarz, an outdoor film series, Pumpkin Day, the Greenpoint Children's Halloween Parade & Party, and Santa Brunch. Among other things, we brought the world-renown Moscow Circus for its first performance in Greenpoint in 2008. We also offer chess programs in partnership with Chess NYC, and present awesome informational expos and fairs such as Go Green! Brooklyn Festival, Babyfest, NYC PTA Expo, and Schoolfest.
